French film to be screened for Ilkley Arts Festival
2:00pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
The French film Renoir is the next Ilkley Film Society presentation at the Playhouse on Sunday, and will be shown as part of Ilkley Arts Festival.
Set in 1915, the film is the true story of the relationship between Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir and his son Jean, who would later become one of France’s greatest film directors.
Returning home after being wounded in the Great War, Jean falls in love with Andree, his father’s latest model and inspiration, who would herself later become a star of silent films. The visual beauty of the film is worthy of Renoir’s paintings.
This is a change in the film society’s programme as originally published in its brochure, replacing the Italian film Caesar Must Die which is not yet available and will be shown in January.
The film starts at 8pm and tickets for non-members cost £4 (£2 for students). They can be reserved by telephoning Richard Fort on (01535) 653471. Further information is available at ilkleyfilmsociety.org.uk.
