2nd FESTIVAL DEI POPOLI
NEW YORK DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL
NEW YORK, MAY 27-31 2009

The second edition of New York Documentary Film Festival – Festival dei Popoli (May 27-31 2009) at the Anthology Film Archives (32 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10003) is part of an ongoing movement by the Festival dei Popoli to celebrate its 50th anniversary through the circulation of its rich collection of archival footage abroad. Founded in 1959 in Florence, the Festival dei Popoli is devoted to promoting and studying social documentary cinema. In fifty years, the collection has grown into an unparalleled treasury of documentary films covering the history of non-fiction filmmaking.

Legendary New York documentarist Albert Maysles, will open the five-day event with a rare screening of his "Meet Marlon Brando" in the directors’ presence. Maysles draws an intimate and unusual portrait of Brando as himself during a lengthy, semi-voluntary session of press interviews set up to try and save his ill-fated film project Morituri. The Festival dei Popoli is honored to pay tribute to Maysles’ unique vision with two more of his films in this year’s program, including his first feature "Psychiatry in Russia".
