Sedona Film Festival hosts big-screen presentation of art series at Mary D. Fisher theatre
Sedona AZ (September 3, 2020) – Sedona International Film Festival presents the Great Art on Screen series with “Hermitage: The Power of Art”. The event will show in Sedona on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Great Art on Screen is a series of documentaries featuring an in-depth look at the most extraordinary and groundbreaking art masters of their time.
A spectacular documentary event tours through St. Petersburg’s State Hermitage Museum, a wonderful complex of buildings with the largest collection of paintings in the world, to retrace two and a half centuries. Audiences pass through the magnificent interiors that provided a meeting point for foreign artists, architects and intellectuals creating connections through art and culture.
The history of the museum is marked by the acquisitions of the enlightened Empress Catherine II, whose personality has continued to fascinate art historians and critics over the centuries. Toni Servillo leads us on this journey through the Hermitage and the magnificent city of St. Petersburg with its waterfront, statues, canals and the bridges that form a symbolic cultural and visual element between places and distant civilizations.
The Great Art on Screen Series is generously sponsored by Goldenstein Gallery.
“Hermitage: The Power of Art” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members. Tickets are available in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office or by calling 928-282-1177 or online at www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.
