If "Stranger By The Lake" was -- or is about to be -- your introduction to French director Alain Guiraudie, then New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center has a serious treat for you (if you live in New York, at least): From January 24-30, they will be screening all of Guiraudie's films. 

Notably, none of Guiraudie's earlier films have even been distributed in the U.S. -- "Stranger By The Lake" will be his first. So in honor of that the FSCL will present all of his rarely seen work, including all his short, medium-length, and feature films.

As per FSCL:

Alain Guiraudie has long been one of French cinema’s most singular voices. Openly gay, drawn to rural, working-class life, and a true regionalist (who typically works in and around his home region of Aveyron in the south), he is an outsider in almost every sense. Many of his films—including his 2001 breakthrough That Old Dream That Moves, lauded by Jean-Luc Godard as the best film at Cannes that year—are sui generis, shape-shifting tales, anchored equally in unknowable mysteries of desire and concrete facts of social life.

Here's a full list of the films and screening times:

The King of Escape

Alain Guiraudie | 2009 | 93 mins

Director Alain Guiraudie will introduce the January 24 screening! When a gay, middle-aged tractor salesman rescues a 16-year old girl from bullies, she falls head over heels for her unlikely savior—and he decides to try his hand at a straight love affair.

Friday, January 24 9:30pm

Sunday, January 26 7:00pm

Tuesday, January 28 9:00pm
