Mr. Turner: A FrameWorks Screening with Gillian Forrester Mon. Feb 2 at 6:45 pm
Mr. Turner is high on my list of best art biopics ever." (Roberta Smith, NY Times)
Academy Award Nominee for Best Cinematography. The latest from master filmmaker Mike Leigh explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), who is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
Q&A Gillian Forrester, Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Yale Center for British Art
An authority on J.M.W. Turner, Gillian Forrester has contributed to both the Oxford Companion to J.M.W. Turner and to the catalog for the J.M.W. Turner Retrospective, the most comprehensive ever presented in the US. The Yale Center for British Art has outstanding holdings of works by J.M.W. Turner, including a remarkable sketchbook dating from the 1840s containing coastal views which Turner almost certainly used during his stays at Margate that are so vividly portrayed in Mr. Turner. Several of the Center’s paintings, notably Staffa, Fingal’s Cave, were featured in this remarkable film.
Mike Leigh. 2014. 150 m. R. UK. Sony Pictures Classics.

"... [A] small miracle of a film, captures the grass-roots swirl of New York City with an extraordinary sensory attuning to urban life." (Stephen Holden, New York Times)
Free Community Event! This award-winning film tells the story of Ricky, a 13-year old boy with Asperger's Syndrome who gets lost one day in the New York City subway system. While his mother frantically searches for him above ground, the sensory-sensitive Ricky is exposed to the cacophony, eccentricity, and menace found in New York's underground, resulting in a truly authentic view into both the wonders and the horrors of what lies below. This program is presented in partnership with Pleasantville SEPTA (Special Education PTA).
Sam Fleischner. 2014. 102 m. NR. USA, English/Spanish with subtitles. Oscilloscope.
