Exhibition On Screen: REMBRANDT
Director: Kat Mansoor
2014, UK, 90
Cast: Narrator: Robert Lindsay
One of Exhibition On Screen’s most remarkable – and beloved – films returns to Cinestudio’s vast screen (and super comfortable new seats)! The movie offers a unique opportunity to see the remarkable collection of Rembrandt’s soulful, final masterpieces at London’s National Gallery, in collaboration with Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. Given privileged access to both galleries, director Kat Mansoor not only brings us up close to the paintings, he skillfully weaves Rembrandt’s life story with behind-the-scenes preparations for the exhibitions, and interviews with highly knowledgeable curators and art historians. For many, Rembrandt is one of humanity’s greatest artists, and this deeply moving film seeks the truth about the man behind his timeless works.
“In both classic masterpieces and unknown treasures, we see the same subtle passion painted into every subject’s expression, and it is this emotion that brings each character to life.” – Annabel Sheen, ApolloMagazine.com.
