Gauguin hits the silver screen
You’ve seen the exhibition, and now you can see the man … well, versions of the man played by various actors. We’re holding a Gauguin film festival during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day with three films based on Gauguin’s life.
Gauguin the Savage is scheduled for Saturday, December 26, at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday, December 29, at 1:30 p.m. In this little-known, Emmy-winning TV drama, Gauguin (played here by the late David Carradine) abandons his wife and children in Europe for a life of artistic freedom in Tahiti.
The Wolf at the Door will be playing on Sunday, December 27, at 1:30 p.m. and Wednesday, December 30, at 1:30 p.m. This biographical film, directed by Henning Carlsen with Donald Sutherland and Max von Sydow, dramatizes Paul Gauguin’s return to Paris after a long stay in Tahiti and his difficulty selling enough paintings to finance the trip back to his island paradise.
Finally, we have The Moon and Sixpence on Thursday, December 31, at
All films will be shown at the CMA in the Morley Lecture Hall. Each movie costs $8; the cost is $6 for CMA members, seniors 65 and over, and students. More information about how to purchase tickets is available online.
