The film treats The Hermitage as a living being. It tells the story of the daily life of the museum today continuously leaving the ‘here and now’ to retrace two and a half centuries. A wonderful complex of buildings with the largest collection of paintings in the world, St. Petersburg and the Hermitage were a meeting point for foreign artists, architects and intellectuals creating connections through art and culture. The history of the museum is marked by the acquisitions of the enlightened Empress Catherine II, whose personality has continued to fascinate art historians and critics over the centuries. Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty’s protagonist, 3 times EFA Award winner, 4 times David di Donatello Award winner) leads us on this journey through cultural bridges between places and distant civilizations. Bridges form a symbolic visual element, that will be repeated in the narrative.

New Farm Cinemas Exclusive Q&A with Director Alyssa Bolsey after the screening. Wednesday 6.30pm 30 October.

“Not only a great biopic, but also a marvelous celebration of the art of cinema.” - Hammer to Nail

The Bolex camera has been a trusty tool for filmmakers since its introduction in the 1920s. In this personal film, Alyssa Bolsey delves into her family’s history to uncover the story of the camera’s inventor, her great-grandfather Jacques Bolsey. A Russian refugee living in neutral Switzerland during WWI, Bolsey developed the iconic Bolex as a way to democratise image-making. Archival footage and interviews with renowned filmmakers who still swear by Bolsey’s invention offer an ode to the man and his movie camera.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN Season 6: Van Gogh & Japan

CTC

“I envy the Japanese” Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based – VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam – one can see why. Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art.

One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh. Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and thrn creating his own image of Japan – through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists – Van Gogh’s encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction.

After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find – the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors.

In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.

“Dr. Ruth is totally the Ruth Bader Ginsburg of sex.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Ask Dr. Ruth chronicles the incredible life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, a Holocaust survivor who became America’s most famous sex therapist. With her diminutive frame, thick German accent, and uninhibited approach to sex therapy and education, Dr. Ruth transformed the conversation around sexuality. At 91 years old, she hasn’t stopped working, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Filmmaker Ryan White captures Dr. Ruth’s exuberant personality as she skips from speaking engagements to TV and radio appearances. Alongside her optimism are storybook-like animations that bring Dr. Ruth’s childhood as an orphan of the Holocaust to life. The tragic loss of being separated from her parents and never seeing them again shaped how she would embrace the world. A critics’ darling the world over, Ask Dr Ruth is an inspiring and entertaining portrait of a trailblazer.

“A heartfelt tribute to one of the great Jews of early Hollywood.” - Atlanta Jewish Times

A German Jewish immigrant, Carl Laemmle was one of the great creative minds behind the modern motion picture business. After establishing Universal Pictures in 1912, Laemmle would go on to give many Hollywood legends their starts, including Walt Disney, John Ford and Irving Thalberg. He also hired many female directors and made Lois Weber the highest paid director on his lot. Under Laemmle’s leadership, Universal would become known for its classic monster movies, mostly notably The Phantom of the Opera, Frankenstein and Dracula. After selling the studio in 1936, Laemmle would go on to battle Adolf Hitler’s government and a notoriously anti-Semitic US State Department, and ultimately rescue over 300 Jewish refugee families from Nazi Germany.

Twenty years before the ascent of Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu already understood the political benefits of a relationship with the media, and direct communication with the public. King Bibi explores Netanyahu’s rise to power, relying solely on archival footage of his media performances over the years: from his days as a popular guest expert on American TV, through his public confession of adultery, and his mastery of the art of social media. From one studio to another, ‘Bibi’ evolved from Israel’s great political hope, to a controversial figure whom some perceive as Israel’s savior, and others – as a cynical politician who will stop at nothing to retain his power.

“As much poetry as documentary – a gentle, rhapsodic film… and a moving portrait of a love that still resonates.” - The Wrap

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love is a beautiful yet tragic love story between Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen. Their love began on the idyllic Greek island of Hydra in 1960 as part of a bohemian community of foreign artists, writers, and musicians. The film follows their relationship from the early days on Hydra, a humble time of ‘free love’ and open marriage, to how their love evolved when Leonard became a successful musician. It was on Hydra in 1968 that director Nick Broomfield, then aged 20, first met Marianne Ihlen. Marianne introduced him to Leonard Cohen’s music and also encouraged Broomfield to make his first film and was an enormous influence on him. Marianne and Leonard’s was a love story that would continue for the rest of their lives.

“When I think back on that young Jewish boy fleeing the Nazis, I find it hard to believe how I ended up here.” - Sir Frank Lowy

Frank Lowy, founder of shopping centre giant Westfield, started with one Australian store and built it into a global billion dollar enterprise. Now in his late 80s and facing the prospect of a merger that will lead to his retirement, he reflects on his past and events that have molded him into the fighter, philanthropist and survivor he is today.

Born in Czechoslovakia in 1930, Lowy survived the Holocaust, moved to Australia and built a close family and business empire. Revisiting the sites of his childhood and young adulthood, What Will Become Of Us takes us on an intimate journey of a man who seems to have it all but is keenly aware of the past and challenges of the future for himself and his wife. Lowy’s extraordinary life—from the ghettos of Budapest to living as a refugee in Palestine—is the story of his achievements despite all challenges.

“A diabolical public figure mesmerizes from the grave.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Roy Cohn was one of the most controversial and influential American men of the 20th century. An only son born to a Jewish Family in the Bronx, Cohn is best known for being Senator Joseph McCarthy's chief counsel, prosecuting Esther and Julius Rosenberg, and for influencing the career of the young Queens real estate developer Donald Trump. He was a closeted man who refused to publicly identify as gay even as he was dying of Aids.

Explosive and scathingly delicious, Where's My Roy Cohn? is a thriller-like exposé that reveals the workings of a deeply troubled master manipulator.

But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.

To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad.

With The Farewell, writer/director Lulu Wang has created a heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we live it, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves.
