CÉZANNE - PORTRAITS OF A LIFE
From the National Portrait Gallery London, Musée d’Orsay Paris & National Gallery of Art Washington DC.
Directed by Phil Grabsky
Running time: 85 minutes

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is thrilled to present one of the most talked-about exhibitions of the year. Dedicated to the portrait work of Paul Cézanne, the exhibition opens in Paris before traveling to London and Washington.

One can’t appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Featuring interviews with curators and experts from the National Portrait Gallery London, MoMA New York, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences beyond the exhibition to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least-known of all the impressionists – until now.

Puccini’s thrilling Tosca is a story of love, terror, the abuse of power, and the unquenchable longing for freedom. When an escaped political prisoner takes refuge in a church, an opera singer and a painter are drawn into a twisting plot that puts them at the mercy of the secret police and its network of torturers and spies. Rivalling the splendour of Franco Zeffirelli’s Napoleonic-era sets and costumes, Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for extraordinary singing. Kristine Opolais stars as the titular prima donna, alongside Vittorio Grigolo as her artist lover and Bryn Terfel as the villainous police chief—one of his signature roles. Emmanuel Villaume conducts.

National Theatre Live - Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Benedict Andrews

Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

Please note this is a RECORDING of the Young Vic’s production captured live in front of an audience during it’s successful run in the West End.

Fancy a walk through 1960s swinging London? This is Michael Caine’s personal take on Sixties London as he accompanies you in this stylish documentary. Presented and narrated by Michael Caine, My Generation playfully explores the impact of Britain’s working class cultural revolution in the 1960s. Attitudes were changing and everything seemed possible. A wealth of archive footage, contributors including Marianne Faithfull, Paul McCartney, Twiggy, David Bailey and Mary Quant, and a spot-on soundtrack from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Who make for an exhilarating journey back in time. Caine is a delightful host and raconteur, sharing priceless anecdotes from the beginning of his career. And throughout this film, which was written by British TV legends Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, there are wonderful moments that capture the energy, style, fashion and sheer exuberance of that era. We guarantee you’ll come out whistling ‘Waterloo Sunset’.
