Pompeii – Sin City

The Little Cinema

Sun 20 June 7:30pm Final

A cinematic journey in one of the world's most famous archaeological sites.
This documentary explores Pompeii, that city cloaked in mystery which, over the course of history, has influenced culture and art, from Neoclassicism to Contemporary Art, through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced, visited and imagined it: from Pliny the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau. The film doesn’t just deal with the volcano eruption, which has gone down in history, but with what the city of Pompeii itself was actually like: how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and their fate.

Munch: Love Phantoms and Lady-Vampires

COMING  August 2021

The debt contemporary culture has towards Munch is impressive, from Andy Wharhol to Ingmar Bergman, from Marina Abramovich to Jasper Johnes. If his painting has become a symbol and at the same time an omen of the tragedies of the twentieth century, his art has travelled new and experimental roads of extraordinary modernity. Today, however, it is his city, Oslo, which sets a turning point for the knowledge of Munch: the birth of a new museum, opening in June 2020. The documentary will start from there to shed light on a man and an artist with singular charm, a precursor and a master.
