Vincent Cassel stars as French post-impressionist painter Paul Gauguin in this touching portrait of the artist’s quest for creative inspiration which takes him from bustling Paris to the remote paradise island of Tahiti.
Leaving his family and contemporaries behind, Gauguin quickly becomes enamoured with this exotic new land, finding an unexpected muse in Teha’amana, a young native girl who soon becomes his child bride.
This screening will accompany I Am Not Your Eve, a panel discussion on Gauguin’s relationship with Teha’amana, the focus of his famous painting, Spirit of the Dead Watching.
