January’s lineup also includes two films short-listed for an Academy Award in the foreign language category.

South Korea’s Oscar submission, “Burning,” will play Jan. 12 and 13.

“The World Before Your Feet,” about a documentarian walking all 8,000 miles of roads and paths in New York City, will screen Jan. 18 and Jan. 20. (The series is taking a break Jan. 19 because its host and producer Jon Busch is being inducted into the Aspen Hall of Fame that night.)
