‘Renoir: Revered and Reviled’
June 20th, 2016 (4:00 pm and 7:00 pm)
Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members
Renoir-teaserSedona International Film Festival presents the fourth feature in the new “Art & Architecture in Cinema” series: “Renoir: Revered and Reviled”. The event will show in Sedona at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre. This is the fourth in a series of seven featured programs. Some claim they are repulsed by Renoir’s later works and some claim they are seduced. What may surprise many is that among the many artists who sought Renoir’s new works out and were clearly highly influenced by them were the two giants of the 20th century — Picasso and Matisse. The film is a fresh new biography of this artistic giant but more than that it uncovers a rarely told story that places Renoir as a critical link between the old and the new.
