Segantini

Segantini – Back to Nature tells the unique and extraordinary story of Giovanni Segantini, focusing on his way of feeling nature as a source of artistic and spiritual inspiration.

Born in Arco di Trento, a man of humble origins with a tortuous life path, Segantini will become one of the most important symbolist painters in the 19th century.

Segantini was a magnificently instinctual painter who liked to call himself “mountain bear,” and this helped him steer clear of rhetoric.

Filippo Timi’s interpretation of Segantini emphasises the intensity of the autograph letters of the painter. The family panorama unrolls in the voice of his granddaughter, Gioconda Segantini.

The historical and artistic panorama in the contribution of Annie-Paule Quinsac, the greatest expert of Segantini’s art, Franco Marocco, director of the Brera Academy, and Romano Turrini, famous historian in Arco.

Degas: Passion for Perfection

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from the streets of Paris to the heart of a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells a fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters.

Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsessive principles and failing eyesight but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas’ drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime but, now through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era.

Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas’ artistic mind.

Young Picasso

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place? Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements.

Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from these early years. The film thus explains how this young artist acquired his craft. Looking carefully at two key early periods – the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period – the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to such great heights.
