The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced a major programming change: Oliver Stone’s latest work won’t be part of the 2011 New York Film Festival lineup.
Stone’s 10-part documentary series, “Untold History of the United States,” will no longer be screening at the festival due to what the FSLC described as scheduling conflicts.
The NYFF initially announced the film as a work-in-progress screening. Stone’s series will premiere on Showtime in 2012.
The film will be replaced with a 25th anniversary screening of his breakthrough film “Salvador,” with Stone in attendance.
The NYFF also announced that the Masterworks presentation of a fully restored “Ben-Hur” will include introductions from the family members of director William Wyler and star Charlton Heston.
