FILM #3: Matisse
Saturday, March 16, 1pm
Audiences are invited to enjoy an intimate, behind-the-scenes documentary about this once-in-a-lifetime blockbuster exhibition with expert contributions from those that knew Matisse as well as curators, historians, Tate director Nicholas Serota and MoMA director Glenn Lowry. Plus there are breathtaking specially commissioned performances by Royal Ballet principal dancer Zenaida Yanowsky and jazz musician Courtney Pine. Acclaimed British actor Simon Russell Beale brings insight and emotion to the words of Henri Matisse himself, while actor Rupert Young (Merlin) narrates.
‘The way the film captured Matisse at work, bringing his artistry to life – including resonant readings from Simon Russell Beale – was genuinely inspiring’ – Apollo Magazine
Shown on the Kate’s BIG Screen!
OTHER FILMS IN THE SERIES:
FILM #4: Rembrandt
Saturday, April 13, 1pm
For many, Rembrandt is the greatest artist that ever lived, and this deeply moving film seeks to explore the truth about the man behind the legend. The film tells the remarkable tale of Rembrandt’s life story while exploring many of the exhibition’s key works.
FILM #5: Goya
Saturday, May 25, 1pm
Francisco Goya is Spain’s most celebrated artist and considered the father of modern art. Not only a brilliant observer of everyday life and Spain’s troubled past, he is a gifted portrait painter and social commentator par excellence.
FILM #6: Van Gogh & Japan
Saturday, June 8, 1pm
After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find – the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will, and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors.
