REEL ART 2018: HUMAN FLOW
Jan 8 @ 7:00 pm
INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED ARTIST AI WEIWEI’S
VISUALLY STUNNING DOCUMENTARY ABOUT
ONE OF THE GREATEST ISSUES OF OUR TIME
Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape
famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War
II.
Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey.
Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the
haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?
Participant Media and AC Films present Human Flow, a film directed by Ai Weiwei. The producers are Ai Weiwei, Chin-chin Yap and Heino Deckert. Andy Cohen of AC Films with Jeff Skoll and Diane Weyermann of Participant Media are the executive producers.

REEL ART 2018: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT
Feb 5 @ 7:00 pm

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly forty years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits–and at times risking her life in the process–she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time. — (C) Music Box Films

KLIMT & SCHIELE: EROS & PSYCHE – Reel Art 2019
Jan 7 @ 7:00 pm
An in-depth look at images of extraordinary visual power: going from the enchanting enveloping decorations of Klimt’s works, to the anguished linework of Egon Schiele in his magnetic nudes and in the contorted figures. A stunning revealing of Klimt and Schiele’s masterpieces.
As the roar of the First World War cannons is dying out, in Vienna, the heart of Central Europe, a golden age comes to an end. The Austro – Hungarian Empire is beginning to disintegrate. On the night of October 31st, in the bed of his home, Egon Schiele dies, one of the 20 million deaths caused by the Spanish flu. He dies looking at the invisible evil in the face, in the only he can do: painting it. He is 28 years old. Only a few months earlier, the main hall of the Secession building had welcomed his works: 19 oil paintings and 29 drawings. His first successful exhibition, a celebration of a new painting idea that portrays the restlessness and desires of mankind. A few months earlier, his teacher and friend Gustav Klimt had died. From the turn of the century, he had fundamentally changed the feeling of art and founded a new group: the Secession.
The documentary film Klimt & Schiele – Eros and Psyche recounts this extraordinary season: a magical moment for art, literature, and music, in which new ideas are circulated, Freud discovers the drives of the psyche, and women begin to claim their independence. An age that revealed the abysses of the ego, in which today we’re still reflecting
ourselves. The film will take us through 5 stunning exhibitions.
In a letter to his uncle Leopold Czihaczek, 1911, Egon Schiele, says “Erotic works of art are sacred too!”
