Great art at cinema
On January 30, the new season of the festival "The great art at cinema" will start, which will lead us on a journey through the works of Caravaggio, Hockney, van Gogh, Cézanne and the Nazi obsession with art. The event will be broadcast in many Italian cinemas.
On the 30th and 31st of January the appointment is with "David Hockney from the Royal Academy of Arts", the docufilm that tells the two great exhibitions dedicated to the artist in the last five years by the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Hockney, one of the most famous British artists in the world, has a unique relationship with the institution, for which he creates two ad hoc exhibitions, transforming them into amazing events.
On 19, 20 and 21 February the exhibition "Caravaggio, the soul and the blood" will start, one of the first productions in Italy made in 8K, which offers an almost tactile perception of the more than 40 works covered in the film. Dedicated to one of the most controversial and beloved artists in the world and produced by Sky and Magnitudo Film, the film makes the viewer take an emotional journey through the life, works and torments of Caravaggio, a brilliant and contradictory painter who more than any other has gathered in itself lights and shadows, genius and unruliness, generating sublime works.
The days 13 and 14 March will be the turn of the screening of "Hitler against Picasso and the others". The documentary collects direct testimonies related to stories that start from the great exhibitions that, after 80 years, in 2017, take stock of the stolen art, among the protagonists of those years, and last returns. Produced by 3D Productions and Nexo Digital.
On 9, 10 and 11 April we will go on a film tour through the legacy of the largest private collector of the Dutch painter Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), who in the early twentieth century came to buy almost 300 of his works, including paintings and drawings.
The film festival ends with "Cézanne. Portraits of a life ". The documentary, which will be broadcast on May 8th and 9th, pays tribute to the father of modern art, who influenced Fauves, cubists and all the artists of the avant-gardes. Cézanne - Portraits of a life leads the viewer into the life of the artist through his personal letters and the exploration of private spaces, including films shot in the south of France, where Cézanne was born and died out.
