TUESDAY FEBRUARY 7 7.30PM

Dir Oliver Hermanus        UK/Japan/Sweden 2022        102 mins      Cert 12

Starring Bill Nighy and scripted by Kazuo Ishiguro, Living is a gentle and poignant remake of the great Japanese director Akira Kurosawa’s 1952 film Ikuru (To Live). The film is set in 1950s London and in a deeply affecting performance Nighy plays a buttoned-up civil servant Mr Williams, who receives news which compels him to rethink his outlook on life. This wise and moving drama is an existential journey that celebrates learning how to live life, in all its fleeting beauty.

CEZANNE: PORTRAITS OF A LIFE

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to be bringing back one of its most successful ever films, dedicated to the life and work of Paul Cézanne. One cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Filmed at the National Portrait Gallery in London, with additional interviews from experts and curators from MoMA in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences to the places Cézanne lived and worked, and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps one of the least known and yet most important of all the Impressionists.

 “... a film that thoroughly repays careful listening and looking”              The Guardian 

 

Released to coincide with a major Cézanne exhibition at Tate Modern Oct 22 – Mar 23.

MARY CASSATT: PAINTING THE MODERN WOMAN

marycassatt.jpg

Released to coincide with International  Women’s Day

Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art. Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted.

She printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet never married or had children herself. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals - the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art. The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely
re-written. Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all.
