Art on Film, a new series at Vancity Theatre, takes you around the world with a behind the scenes look into some of the world’s greatest galleries, museums and treasures.
Winds of Heaven – “Ambitious, impressionistic, and endowed with a stunning wealth of archival imagery, Winds of Heaven stands as the definitive, critical film portrait of Emily Carr.” Janet Smith, Georgia Straight
National Gallery – “One of the greatest [films] I have seen all year… Magnificent… Wiseman’s touch is deft but light here, and the experience of watching National Gallery is pleasurable and immersive because he’s a wonderful storyteller. It is also unexpectedly moving.” Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
The New Rijksmuseum – “Hoogendijk has created an artifact that 400 years hence may prove as vital a window into Amsterdam culture as any of the Dutch masterpieces hanging in the museum itself.” Peter Debruge, Variety
Levitated Mass – “The proximity, orientation, and monumental nature is what makes Levitated Mass the piece so powerful, and Levitated Mass the film not only captures that but puts those ideals forth as something culturally and socially important, something that happened when the mass met the masses.” Katie Walsh, Playlist
Hermitage Revealed – From Rembrandt to Russian masterpieces, from prehistoric artefacts to the private gemstone collection of Catherine The Great, from Michelangelo to Matisse and much, much more, the exquisite treasures the Hermitage has to offer are seemingly endless.
Exhibition on Screen: Munch 150 – Munch 150 was co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. With 220 paintings on show, it brought together the greatest number of Munch’s key works in one place. Harding’s documentary allows us to view these masterworks with incredible clarity and detail, and offers expert insight and analysis.
