Earning him an Oscar nomination, Willem Dafoe is mesmerising as Vincent van Gogh in At Eternity’s Gate. Covering his time in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, we find a complex, troubled soul who is seeking a new visual language, while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him, including Paul Gaugain (Oscar Isaac) and a confiding priest (Mads Mikkelsen).
Shot with a painter’s eye, Julian Schnabel once again shows his talent for working with complex biography and the lives of artists as in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Basquiat.
Following a screening of the film, a conversation with writer/director Julian Schnabel and Carol Jacobi, exhibition curator of Tate Britain's Van Gogh and Britain will be livestreamed by the internet to cinemas.
This event took place on Monday 1 April 2019.
