FILMS

 

HANDS OF EROS – 11 AM

 

‘Hands of Eros’ a short documentary, illuminates the sensuous and private world of Milton Hebald, master sculptor, whose hands have molded the human spirit from terracotta into bronze for over eighty years. This film reveals the private thoughts and skills of a man who, even at 94, enlivens his sculptures with beauty and innate eroticism.

 

This non-linear short documentary maintains an historical thread, interweaving nearly a century of experiences and the unquenchable creative appetite of this bold artist. Milton Hebald, master sculptor – his hands are ‘The Hands of Eros’. Written by Linda Carfagno, director. 35 minutes

 

The documentary will be followed with a brief talk by Pamela Keech, a local gallery owner and Fellow of the American Academy in Rome, who is familiar with Hebald’s life and work.

RIVERS AND TIDES – 1 PM

 

A film with Andy Goldsworthy, directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer. Winner of 8 Awards!

 

Landscape sculptor Andy Goldsworthy is renowned throughout the world for his work in ice, stone, leaves, and wood. His own remarkable still photographs are Goldsworthy’s way of talking about his often ephemeral works, of fixing them in time. Now with this deeply moving film, shot in four countries and across four seasons, and the first major film he has allowed to be made, the elusive element of time adheres to his sculpture. 90 minutes

HERB AND DOROTHY – 3 PM

 

Winner of 6 Awards – this documentary film takes a close look at the historical gift project by the legendary art collector couple, Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, and its impact on art communities around America.

 

Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, a former postal clerk and a librarian, built a world-class collection of Minimal and Conceptual Art with their modest salaries. Over 2000 works were packed into their small NYC apartment, but they never sold a piece for profit. In 1992, they decided to transfer the entire collection to the National Gallery of Art, making headlines worldwide. Directed by Megumi Sasaki. Starring Paula Antebi, Will Barnet, Robert Barry and Lynda Benglis. 87 minutes

MR. TURNER – 7 PM

 

Directed and written by Mike Leigh, this biographical drama film was nominated for 4 Oscars and BAFTA Awards 2015 – Winner of 2 Cannes Film Festival Awards 2014.

 

This film explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty. Starring Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson, Marion Bailey, Lesley Manville and Martin Savage. Rated R – 150 minutes

BETWEEN THE FOLDS – 1 PM

 

The Science of Art. The Art of Science – Winner of 3 Film Festival Awards. Origami may seem an unlikely medium for understanding and explaining the world. But around the globe, several fine artists and theoretical scientists are abandoning more conventional career paths to forge lives as modern-day paper folders. Through origami, these offbeat and provocative minds are reshaping ideas of creativity and revealing the relationship between art and science.

 

BETWEEN THE FOLDS chronicles 10 of their stories. Featuring interviews with and insights into the practice of these intrepid paper folders, the film opens with three of the world’s foremost origami artists: a former sculptor in France who folds caricatures in paper rivaling the figures of Daumier and Picasso; a hyper-realist who walked away from a successful physics career to challenge the physics of a folded square instead; and an artisanal papermaker who folds impressionistic creations from the very same medium he makes from scratch. 1 hour
