Writer/director Gabriel Le Bomin’s spectacularly-mounted biographical drama DE GAULLE stirringly depicts a crucial period in the life of one of modern French history's most famous figures. It is May 1940, where the war between Germany and its neighbours has intensified. Shockingly, the French army collapses, and Hitler seizes Paris. The government is in panic and considers accepting defeat, but recently promoted two-star General Charles de Gaulle (The Translators' Lambert Wilson), wants to change the course of history... His wife, Yvonne (Isabelle Carré), is his first support, but very quickly events spiral out of control and separate them - she and their children set out on the roads of exodus, as Charles travels to London to meet with Winston Churchill.
A unique opportunity to see, as never before, this series of spectacular paintings. Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers are among his most famous works, and are some of the most iconic paintings in the world. In an extraordinary exhibition, the Van Gogh Museum took a new and revealing look at the five publicly-owned versions of sunflowers in a vase. And once again, the Van Gogh museum opened its doors exclusively to Exhibition on Screen. They are immediately recognisable, but our film goes beyond the surface to explore the many questions and mysteries that surround these works. Why, for example, did Van Gogh choose the exotic sunflower with its long stem and golden crown? Indeed, when did the flower itself arrive in Europe and how had previous artists reacted to it? What was Van Gogh trying to say with his works and how does that differ from version to version? All is revealed in this fascinating film, which travelled beyond Amsterdam to Tokyo, Philadelphia, London and Munich to film, in incredible high-definition detail, all five of the works. Directed by David Bickerstaff. Screening Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 May 2021. All Tickets $20.00

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to bring back one of its most successful films ever, offering a unique and fascinating exploration of the life and times of Paul Cézanne.

Filmed on location at the National Portrait Gallery London, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, this film features interviews with curators and experts, and correspondence from the artist himself, taking us beyond Cézanne’s portraits to the places he lived and worked, and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least known of all the impressionists – until now.

For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits. The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency. Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show. Directed by David Bickerstaff.
Screening Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 September 2021. All Tickets $20.00
