II. Országos Képzőművészeti Filmnapok - Gauguin From the National Gallery


Art Documentary, 90 min, 2020
in English with Hungarian subtitles

Show times:

Director: Kate Bryan

Exhibition Event: Documentary + Exhibition Private View

This landmark cinema release opens with a 60-minute documentary about the life and work of Paul Gauguin narrated by actor Dominic West. This is followed by a 30-minute private view filmed exclusively for cinemas of the ‘original and brilliant’ (★★★★★ Telegraph) National Gallery exhibition ‘The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Gauguin Portraits’.

Filmed on location in Tahiti, France, the Marquesas Islands and the UK, the documentary explores Gauguin’s extraordinary – and often problematic – artistic achievement, with commentary from his descendants, contemporary artists and world experts. The film examines Gauguin’s legacy not only through the lens of art history, but also those of gender and post-colonial politics, reassessing the artist’s treatment of young indigenous women and his role in 19th century French colonialism.

Filmed exclusively for cinemas in high definition with stunning close-ups, the exhibition private view gives art enthusiasts the opportunity to see this first ever exhibition of Gauguin’s portraits on the big screen, filmed just after it opened at the National Gallery in London in October 2019. Hosted by art historian and broadcaster Kate Bryan who welcomes the cinema audience, the engaging and insightful guided tour is led by the exhibition co-curator Christopher Riopelle, with illuminating commentary from expert contributors including painter and sculptor Maggi Hambling, and artist and writer Billy Childish.
