RENOIR - REVERED AND REVILED (87 minutes)

Pierre-Auguste Renoir is known and loved for his impressionist paintings of Paris. These paintings count among the world’s favourites. Renoir, however, grew tired of this style and changed course. This stunning film – based on the remarkable collection of 181 Renoirs at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia – examines the direction he then took and why it provokes such extreme reactions right up to today. Some claim they are repulsed by Renoir’s later works and some claim they are seduced. What may surprise many is that among the many artists who sought Renoir’s new works out and were clearly highly influenced by them were the two giants of the 20th century – Picasso and Matisse. The film is a fresh new biography of this artistic giant but more than that it uncovers a rarely told story that places Renoir as a critical link between the old and the new.

PAINTING THE MODERN GARDEN - FROM MONET TO MATISSE (approx. 95 minutes)

Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Cleveland Museum of Art and The Royal Academy, London.

From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract color, decorative design and utopian ideas. Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring facination with gardens today. Long considered spaces for expressing colour, light and atmosphere, the garden has occupied the creative minds of some of the worlds greatest artists. As Monet said, ‘Apart from painting and gardening, I’m no good at anything’. For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is an ideal film.

TEATRO ALLA SCALA: THE TEMPLE OF WONDERS (approx. 95 minutes)

Built between 1776 and 1778, the year of its inauguration, the teatro alla Scala in Milan has drawn major artists from the international music scene, turning immediately into the theatre of reference, the one every artist aspires to, the Mecca of music. to this day, performing at the Scala means consecrating a career in the eyes of the world.

Music critic John Gavazzeni wrote: “The pillars of world Opera repertoire are Italian: Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini - composers whose works have been performed the most all over the world. The symbol of all great conductors is an Italian, Arturo Toscanini. They were all launched or consecrated in one place: at the ‘Teatro alla Scala’, as well as the careers of great sopranos like Renata Tebaldi and Maria Callas, and of directors like Visconti, Zeffirelli and Strehler”. Teatro alla Scala 4k - The Temple of Wonders is a journey through time and space to discover a marvellous place, where the most glorious pages in the history of music, opera and ballet have been written.

5/24 & 29 Skylight (By Experience) (not yet confirmed)

Winner of the 2015 Tony® Award for Best Revival of a Play, Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan feature in the West End production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, captured live during the production's original 2014 London run by National Theatre Live.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

Bill Nighy, whose extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and whose stage roles include Pravda and the world premiere of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour on Broadway, plays alongside Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby, An Education) who is making her West End stage debut, and Matthew Beard (An Education, One Day, The Look of Love).

Skylight is directed by Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry, who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience with Helen Mirren, which was also broadcast to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

David Hare is the author of 29 plays for stage, including Plenty, Racing Demon, Amy’s View, Pravda (with Howard Brenton) and Stuff Happens. His many screenplays include The Hours and The Reader.

Skylight was originally produced at the National Theatre in 1995, before transferring to the West End and Broadway, and won an Olivier Award for Best Play.
