RUSALKA

by ANTONÍN DVOŘÁK

Live in HD from New York’s Metropolitan Opera
A water nymph’s desperate longing to experience true love plunges her into the emotional maelstrom of life at a handsome Prince’s court.  Emerging with a profounder understanding of the unspeakable pain, as well as the fleeting joys, of human existence, she nevertheless finds it within herself to forgive her betrayer, even at the cost of her own immortal soul. Kristine Opolais stars in the role that helped launch her international career, the mythical Rusalka, who sings the haunting “Song to the Moon.”

I, CLAUDE MONET
 
In this striking film, we take a new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – through his own words. Using letters and other private writings, I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, often suffered from feelings of  depression, loneliness, even suicide. An unmissable cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE

Revolution – New Art for a New World

Marking the 100th Anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Margy Kinmonth, the film encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde. Drawing on the collections of major Russian institutions, contributions from contemporary artists, curators and performers and personal testimony from the descendants of those involved, the film brings the artists of the Russian Avant-Garde to life. It tells the stories of artists like Chagall, Kandinsky and Malevich – pioneers who flourished in response to the challenge of building a new art for a new world, only to be broken by implacable authority after 15 short years and silenced by Stalin’s Socialist Realism.

Yet these remarkable artworks survived and the Russian Avant-Garde continues to exert an influence over contemporary art movements. Revolution: New Art for a New World confirms this; exploring the fascination that these colourful paintings, inventive sculptures and propaganda posters retain over the modern consciousness 100 years on.

THE ARTISTS’ GARDEN:
AMERICAN IMPRESSIONISM
From the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American Impressionism.
 Taking its lead from French artists like Renoir and Cezanne, the American impressionist movement followed its own path which over a thirty-year period reveals as much about  America as a nation as it does about its art as a creative powerhouse.  It’s a story closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the United States, UK and France, this mesmerizing film is a feast for the eyes.
