John Singer Sargent: Fashion & Swagger (PG)

John Singer Sargent: Fashion & Swagger

Step into the glittering world of fashion, scandal and shameless self promotion that made John Singer Sargent the painter who defined an era. Explore the unique creative process of the late 19th century’s favourite portrait artist and the way in which his portraits captured the spirit of a vibrant and rapidly changing age.


John Singer Sargent is known as the greatest portrait artist of his era. What made his ‘swagger’ portraits remarkable was his power over his sitters, what they wore and how they were presented to the audience. Through interviews with curators, contemporary fashionistas and style influencers, Exhibition on Screen’s film will examine how Sargent’s unique practice has influenced modern art, culture and fashion.


Filmed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Tate Britain, London, the exhibition reveals Sargent’s power to express distinctive personalities, power dynamics and gender identities during this fascinating period of cultural reinvention. Alongside 50 paintings by Sargent sit stunning items of clothing and accessories worn by his subjects, drawing the audience into the artist’s studio.


Sargent’s sitters were often wealthy, their clothes costly, but what happens when you turn yourself over to the hands of a great artist? The manufacture of public identity is as controversial and contested today as it was at the turn of the 20th century, but somehow Sargent’s work transcends the social noise and captures an alluring truth with each brush stroke.

La Chimera (15)

La Chimera

Just out of jail and still searching for his late beloved Beniamina, crumpled English archaeologist Arthur (Josh O’Connor) reconnects with his wayward crew of tombaroli accomplices – a happy-go-lucky collective of itinerant grave-robbers who survive by looting Etruscan tombs and fencing the ancient treasures they dig up. Arthur isn’t interested in the artefacts, though; he’s seeking a legendary door to the underworld, and to Beniamina.


In an adventurous journey between the living and the dead, between forests and cities, between celebrations and solitudes, the intertwined destinies of these characters unfold, all in search of the Chimera.


“A joyous, masterful work of folk magic.”

Red Herring (12A)

Red Herring

When Kit Vincent, a young filmmaker, receives a terminal diagnosis aged 24, his first instinct is to turn on his camera and document those closest to him. Kit’s divorced parents are naturally having a hard time grappling with the reality of their son’s illness, and his father, Lawrence, begins a transition of his own-a conversion to Judaism. Following along with his father’s process of grieving for his son’s upended future, Red Herring captures the absurdity of the things we do to find solace in times of inexplicable tragedy.

 

In this personal and touching documentary about a life cut short, Vincent walks the line between humour and grief to helm this love letter to the relationships that keep us going through the dark stages of life.


Each week we are selecting a new film for our 16-25 members to discover with the reduced ticket cost of just £3.

Social Cinema: Archive (TBC)

Social Cinema: Archive

Our moving image heritage can be described as looking into a mirror from the past: what we see reflected can shine a light on the cracks that we see in our world.


This programme of short films, produced by the Yorkshire and North East Film Archives, explores social and political issues including gender equality, homelessness and poverty, isolation, and climate justice that resonate with the present and help us reflect on our future.


The programme comprises:


Born a Rebel

Stories of rebellion. Stories of bravery. Stories of women who aren’t waiting for permission to take what they want.


Lost Connections

The film invites reflections on loss, loneliness, isolation, and expressions of desire, optimism, hope, and renewal, referencing universal issues of mental health and well-being.


Cost of Living

As we live through the deepest cost of living crisis for over fifty years, this film expresses the fury and anger of generations whose essential needs for safe housing, secure work and full bellies go unfulfilled. Despite their difficulties, people come together as communities to help those in need and raise a fist of defiance.


Nature Matters

This film reveals the shifting concerns over the decades about issues which impact on our natural world, alongside recent footage of quests for more sustainable lifestyles.


Social Cinema is supported by Film Hub North with National Lottery funding on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network.
