Shirley - Visions of Reality
Dir. Gustav Deutsch. 2013, 92 mins. DCP. With Stephanie Cumming, Christoph Bach.
Thirteen paintings by Edward Hopper are brought stunningly to life in this dazzling visual feast. Masterfully recreating the colors and textures of the artist’s work Deutsch connects the meticulously rendered tableaux with a narrative that spans the myriad social upheavals of mid-twentieth century America, from the Depression to the civil rights movement. Blown up to big-screen proportions and radically re-contextualized, Hopper’s iconic images are given new meaning in this mesmerizing cinematic experiment.
The screening on Friday, July 25 will be followed by a reception and a masterclass presentation by Gustav Deutsch and Hanna Schimek.
