Sunday Cinema ~ AMAZING GRACE [G]

AMAZING GRACE

Documentary/Musical ‧ 88 minutes

“Spine-tingling”, “sensational”, “rousing”: just a few of the words used for Aretha Franklin’s show-stopping performance in this previously unreleased film of her 1972 concert.

The legendary singer and daughter of a Detroit preacher was raised on gospel music. After a string of hits, at age 29 she returned briefly to her roots. Over two days at L.A.’s New Temple Missionary Baptist Church, accompanied by the Southern Californian Community Choir, Aretha sang from the heart and her astounding performance was captured by filmmaker Sydney Pollack. The resulting recording, Amazing Grace, became her most successful album, but the film of her performance – for multiple reasons – was never released…until now. In the audience her father, legendary gospel singers and Mick Jagger are squished alongside camera crew and sound technicians. But all eyes and ears are on the Queen of Soul herself – and she’s never been more mesmerizing.

Directors: Sydney Pollack, Alan Elliott

FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF
ARTS MARGARET RIVER FUNDRAISER
Movie and afternoon tea

TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT HAVE SOLD OUT.

Documentary, US 2018, 75 min
English and Dutch with English subtitles

Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself.

 

REVIEWS:
***** “Five Seasons” reveals gardens you’d look forward to getting lost in, gardens that brilliantly use the interplay of form and color to do wonderful things to your soul.” – Kenneth Turan (Los Angeles Times)
***** “A pleasure on multiple fronts: sensorially, conceptually, narratively.” – Landscape Architecture Magazine

“For me, garden design isn’t just about plants, it is about emotion, atmosphere, a sense of contemplation. You try to move people with what you do. You look at this, and it goes deeper than what you see. It reminds you of something in the genes — nature, or the longing for nature.”
– Piet Oudolf –
