Exhibition on Screen: Easter in Art

Exhibition on Screen: Easter in Art

1:30hrs

Directed by Phil Grabsky

Tuesday, April 7, 7 PM
Saturday, April 11, 1 PM

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilization’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day. Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and thus depicts the history of us all.

Elizabeth MacDonald, Walls and Landscapes: Works in Clay

Elizabeth MacDonald, Walls and Landscapes: Works in Clay

January 25 – March 25, 2020

Potter/sculptor Elizabeth MacDonald of Connecticut and New York works in clay. Her most intriguing designs are rectangular slabs with an archaeological or geological effect. Their earth-toned layers and striations give the effect of a mountainous landscape, a glimpse beneath the surface of the earth, or a close look at one of nature’s exquisite details. Her aim is to convey, through contrasting textures, shapes and surfaces, an intuitive awareness of time and space.

Elizabeth MacDonald in her studio

Ms. MacDonald, who lives in Bridgewater, Connecticut, has been the recipient of numerous awards, and in 1999 received the Governor’s Arts Award in visual arts. She has most recently shown her work at the Century Association in New York City and has completed commissions for the chapel in New Milford Hospital, and the Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven. Ms. MacDonald received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Chatham College, and she attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.

 


 

Met Live: Agrippina

Met Live: Agrippina

by George Frideric Handel

NEW PRODUCTION!

Saturday, February 29, 12:55 PM

Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome arrives in cinemas on February 29, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius. This live cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to more than 2,200 theaters in more than 70 countries worldwide.

NT Live: Cyrano de Bergerac

NT Live: Cyrano de Bergerac

By Edmond Rostand

LIVE! Thursday, February 20, 2 PM
Encore: Sunday, March 1, 1 PM

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the London’s West End.
Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp and directed by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

 


 

Exhibition on Screen: Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait

Exhibition on Screen: Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait

Directed by David Bickerstaff

Tuesday, March 3, 7 PM
Sunday, March 8, 1 PM

For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.

The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints, and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of the very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency. Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show.

 


 

#Anne Frank: Parallel Stories

#Anne Frank: Parallel Stories

Tuesday, March 3, 4 PM
Sunday, March 15, 1 PM

Legendary actress Helen Mirren retraces the life of Anne Frank through the pages of her diary and introduces the viewer to five other women who, as young girls, were also deported to concentration camps during World War II.

Produced in cooperation with the Anne Frank Foundation, the event takes audiences into an exact reconstruction of Anne’s room in Amsterdam, part of the secret annex where the Frank family hid for two years before being discovered and deported to concentration camps. Anne’s writings vividly capture what was happening to a Europe in flames at the time, about Nazism, and her fears, hopes, and dreams. It also provides a context of past human experiences for understanding our own present and future through the experiences of the survivors who lived to tell their own parallel stories of persecution and deportation.

Met Live: Der Fliegende Holländer

By Richard Wagner

Saturday, March 14, 12:55 PM

François Girard, whose revelatory 2013 take on Parsifal set the recent Met standard for Wagner stagings, now unveils a spellbinding new vision of the composer’s tale of a cursed sea captain doomed to sail the open ocean for eternity. With sweeping sets by John Macfarlane, Girard’s new production turns the Met stage into a rich, layered tableau reminiscent of a vast oil painting. Valery Gergiev conducts a brilliant cast led by bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin as the Dutchman, with German soprano Anja Kampe making her anticipated Met debut as the devoted Senta, whose selfless love is what the Dutchman seeks. Bass Franz-Josef Selig is her father, Daland, and tenor Sergey Skorokhodov is her deserted former lover, Erik. This live cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to more than 2,200 theaters in more than 70 countries worldwide.

Sunday, April 5, 1 PM

Director: D.W. Young
Producers: D.W. Young, Dan Wechsler, Judith Mizrachy
Cast: Parker Posey (Executive Producer) with: Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Gay Talese, Parker Posey, David Bergman, Rebecca Romney, Justin Croft, William Reese, Naomi Hample, Jess Kuronen, Michael Zinman, Henry Wessells, Judith Lowry, Caroline Schimmel, Adam Weinberger, Cara Schlesinger, Glenn Horowitz, Heather O’Donnell, David Bergman, Adina Cohen.

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. The film takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics, and dreamers, and features interviews with some of the most important dealers in the business, as well as prominent collectors, auctioneers, and writers. Both a loving celebration of book culture and serious exploration of the future of the book, the film also examines technology’s impact on the trade, the importance of books as physical objects, the decline of used and rare bookstores, collecting obsessions, and the relentless hunt for the next great find. Offering audiences a rare glimpse of many unique and remarkable objects, including the most expensive book ever sold, Da Vinci’s The Codex Leicester; handwritten Borges manuscripts; jeweled bindings; essential early hip-hop documents and more.

After the film: Remain for a Q&A with Producer, Dan Wechsler of Sanctuary Books, Heather O’Donnell of Honey & Wax Booksellers & Bookseller David Bergman (both featured in the film) moderated by Dan Dwyer of Johnnycake Books.

NT Live: The Welkin

A new play by Lucy Kirkwood

One life in the hands of 12 women.

Rural England, 1759. As the country waits for Halley’s comet, 21-year-old Sally Poppy is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder. When Sally claims to be pregnant, a jury of 12 matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she’s telling the truth, or simply trying to escape the noose.

Exhibition on Screen: Frida Kahlo

Exhibition on Screen: Frida Kahlo

Directed by Ali Ray

Tuesday, July 7, 7 PM
Sunday, July 12, 1 PM

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interviews, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.

Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, the film explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo. Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of color and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics, and her cultural heritage.

We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman?
