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.
Julian Schnabel joins us for a post-screening discussion.
This event took place on Saturday 30 March 2019 at Curzon Soho.
