PGfor some action violence, peril and frightening images

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, the screenplay is by Evan Spiliotopoulos and Bill Condon and Stephen Chbosky and is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.

Pechorin, a young officer, embarks on a journey across the majestic mountains of the Caucasus, on a path set by his passionate encounters. Disillusioned and careless, he inflicts pain upon himself and the women around him…

“Give me everything, it is still not enough.” The story based on the larger-than-life hero Pechorin is adapted from Mikhail Lermontov’s literary masterpiece in three separate stories recounting his heartbreaking betrayals. Is Pechorin a real hero? Or is he a man like any other? This brand new production by choreographer Yuri Possokhov is a tragic poetic journey that can only be seen at the Bolshoi.

The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism

The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism

From EXHIBITION ON SCREEN, the creators of Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse,

comes a new film exploring how the relationship between art and gardening blossomed across the

pond.

The Artist’s Garden tells the intertwining stories of American Impressionism and The Garden

Movement which flourished between 1887–1920. Both movements responded to rapid social change

brought about by America’s industrialisation. With increasing urbanisation prompting the emerging

middle-class to seek refuge in the suburbs, they began to spend their free time and wealth

cultivating impressive private gardens.

When French art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel brought a selection of impressionist paintings to New

York in 1886, he changed the course of art in America entirely. Many American artists, inspired by

what they saw, made the pilgrimage to study in Monet’s Giverny, and were keen to employ their

experience to capture America’s own unique landscapes. In doing so, they captured a unique

moment in America’s history - a snapshot of a nation transitioning from a land of agriculture to a land

of industry.

The Artist’s Garden follows the sell-out exhibition The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and

the Garden Movement, 1887-1920, on its journey from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts to

the ‘home’ of the movement - Florence Griswold’s colony at Old Lyme. Famed as a “place for high

thinking and low living”, the colony attracted a host of influential painters including Henry Ward

Ranger and Willard Metcalf.

Vashon Film Society Mr. Gaga

Vashon Film Society Mr. Gaga

“Mr. Gaga”, a spirited documentary feature film about ground-breaking choreographer Ohad Naharin, will be presented by Vashon Film Society for March’s Art Film Series at the Vashon Theatre.

Eight years in the making, the film follows the internationally acclaimed modern dance icon at a critical turning point in his life and career. Director Tomer Heymann weaves extensive rehearsal footage, stunning dance sequences, personal family footage, and previously unseen archive material to craft a story about this genius’ battle for artistic perfection.

When he was 22, Israeli-born Ohad Naharin was invited to perform with the prestigious Martha Graham dance company, and attended Juilliard and the School of American Ballet simultaneously. But the driven artist would not be happy until he could find a path to further his own vision of dance.

Moving back to Israel, Naharin became the artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company and created the daring form of dance and movement language “Gaga.”

Even after achieving worldwide fame, Naharin continues to fight, sometimes with his own dancers, once even with the president of Israel, to make his vision come to life.

The film portrays the choreographer’s battle for artistic perfection, and reveals both the exhausting toll dance can take on its performers, and the extraordinary beauty that art can bring to the world.

Director Tomer Heymann says he was inspired to make a film about the controversial choreographer when he first saw Naharin’s Barcheva Dance Group in performance twenty years ago.

“My head and my heart experienced a giant upheaval, like a superb cocktail of alcohol and drugs, but without the alcohol and without the drugs,” said Heymann, after experiencing the modern dance pioneer’s work on stage.

“Naharin crafts a continuum of movement, music, energy, sexuality, sensuality, and dancers you could fall in love with without knowing why,” comments the documentarian. “He is a tough nut to crack, very complex and contradictory, which makes him a fascinating subject for a film.”mber o

“Mr. Gaga” will be shown at the Vashon Theatre on Thursday, April 6 at 8:30 pm and on Friday, April 7 at 4 pm.
