Pastry-shop worker Verica, opera singer Brankica and Martin (Spaniard) are the protagonists of this film-story about loneliness and search for love. Besides the three of them, we will also get to know two nurses who think a lot about men, one farmer with rather unusual farming talents, a gravely ill woman of an unusual sexual orientation, a handyman who adores all "pretty women“, and we will watch how an accidental series of events entwines their destinies and makes unsolvable situations solvable. It is rather unlikely that several cockroaches, beet root soup and an opera aria can play an important role in all that, but in this story they do.

I, Claude Monet

I, Claude Monet

NR

From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – through his own words.

Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. Then, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his garden at Giverney, his humour, insight and love of life is revealed.

Shot on location in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice I, Claude Monet is a cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

Five-year-old Saroo finds himself alone and travelling on the wrong train away from his home in northern India. Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata. Somehow he survives living on the streets, dodging all sorts of terrors in the process. Eventually ending up in an orphanage, Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple, and finds safety and love as he grows up in Hobart. Not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents’ feelings, he buries his past, his emotional need for reunification and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his secret yearnings. With just a small store of memories, and the help of some newly-developed satellite-imaging technology, Saroo embarks on one of the greatest needle-in-a-haystack quests of modern times.

Paterson

Rsome language

Paterson (Adam Driver) is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey - they share the name.

Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer. He goes home to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani).

By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his secret gift for poetry. The history and energy of the City of Paterson is a felt presence in the film and its simple structure unfolds over the course of a single week.

The quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism

The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism

NR

Following the smash hit Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse from Season 3 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement’ from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American impressionism.

American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a thirty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about a much-loved artistic movement.

The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and treasured locations throughout the Eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.
