AboutAward-winning arts documentary maker Phil Grabskyâs ground-breaking project to connect major exhibitions from across the world with over 200,000 people in cinemas comes to Ropetackle.
Manet: Portraying Life at the Royal Academy Of Arts was the first ever retrospective devoted to the portraiture of Edouard Manet. This film reveals exclusive behind-the-scenes moments of the exhibition's preparation, which normally go unseen by the public, and interweaves a detailed, superbly crafted biography of Manet and 19th century Paris. Host Tim Marlow and special guests look at the craft of one of the all-time great artists, the âfather of modern art'.
The screening will be accompanied by a pre-film talk and post-film Q&A session with Phil Grabsky.
