New Time for Art Flix
On the third Wednesday in each month the National Gallery presents ART FLIX, a public screening of art films and documentaries relating to the history of art. The films are introduced with a short lecture and attendees are invited to discuss films following screenings. A complimentary glass of wine accompanies the film which begins at our new time of 6:30pm at the National Gallery in Harbour Place.
Instructor, David Bridgeman has made the change to the schedule pushing back the start time one hour giving participants the time to manoeuvre through the afternoon traffic and enabling them to catch the entire film and join in the discussion.
This month's presentation on Wednesday 21January at 6:30pm feature's Oscar winning director Sydney Pollack taking a sharp sideways turn with Sketches of Frank Gehry by Sydney Pollack, a documentary about the noted architect.
Pollock adds a genuine curio to his filmmaking resume with this movie. Shooting mostly with hand-held digital-video cameras also brings a nice intimacy to the proceedings, creating a warm testimony to a great artist who has somehow managed to keep his integrity intact despite the ruthless nature of the industry in which he works.
Admission is $5.00 or free for Gallery members. To RSVP, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or for more information call the Gallery at 945-8111.
