Filmforum presents Nightwatching, by Peter Greenaway
Sunday June 17, 2012, 7:30 pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
Nightwatching, by Peter Greenaway  Los Angeles Premiere!

At the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90028

Filmforum is happy to bring the Los Angeles premieres of two Peter Greenaway films, with imported 35mm prints!  The first, Rembrandt's J'Accuse, is on June 3, and the second, Nightwatching, is on June 17.  The two are closely related, fictional and documentary interpretations of Rembrandt and the painting The Night Watch.

Tickets: $10 general; $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members.  Available at Brown Paper tickets:

Nightwatching (2007, 35mm, Color, 134 mins.)
Director: Peter Greenaway
Netherlands/Great Britain/Finland/Germany
With: Martin Freeman, Eva Birthistle, Jodhi May, Emily Holmes
Imported 35mm print!
Trailer: http://www.videosurf.com/nightwatching-83499

Nightwatching, Greenaway's fictional foray into art-history detecting, was made a year before the more spare Rembrandt's J'Accuse  Greenaway takes a fictional approach to the painter's life, portraying Rembrandt's relations with three women, his wife, his model, and his servant, during the creation of his masterpiece, The Night Watch.  It focuses on the painter himself, played with gusto by Martin Freeman (The Office; Sherlock). Shifting between Rembrandt's relations with the three women, and the complications that arise when he accepts a commission to paint a group portrait, Nightwatching uses a series of elegant tableaux to dramatize two mysteries -- that of Rembrandt's life, of which little is known, and that of the iconography of his famous painting The Night Watch. Intertwining it all is a murder.

On Peter Greenaway:
Born in Wales and educated in London, Peter Greenaway trained as a painter for four years, and started making his own films in 1966. He now lives in Amsterdam. He has continued to make cinema in a great variety of ways, which has also informed his curatorial work and the making of exhibitions and installations in Europe from the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice and the Joan Miro Gallery in Barcelona to the Boymans van Beuningen Gallery in Rotterdam and the Louvre in Paris. He has made 12 feature films and some 50 short-films and documentaries, been regularly nominated for the Film Festival Competitions of Cannes, Venice and Berlin, published books, written opera librettos, and collaborated with composers Michael Nyman, Glen Branca, Wim Mertens, Jean-Baptiste Barriere, Philip Glass, Louis Andriessen, Borut Krzisnik and David Lang. His first narrative feature film, The Draughtsmans Contract, completed in 1982, received great critical acclaim and established him internationally as an original film maker, a reputation consolidated by the films, The Cook, the Thief, his Wife & her Lover and The Pillow-book, and most recently by The Tulse Luper Suitcases.
Filmforum's screening series is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles; the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; and the Metabolic Studio.  Additional support generously provided by American Cinematheque.  We also depend on our members, ticket buyers, and individual donors.
