Q&A with director of Van Gogh film

Award-winning director and producer Phil Grabsky, pictured below right, will visit Movies@Gorey on Sunday, July 16, for a question-and-answer session following a 7 p.m. screening of his new film 'Vincent van Gogh - a new way of seeing.'

Enjoying unprecedented access to the treasures of Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum, this fresh new film about one of the world's favourite artists, marks both a major re-hanging of the gallery's collection and a celebration of the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh's death. See these masterpieces on the big screen while world-renowned curators and art historians offer their interpretations and explanations of his work.

The question and answer session will be hosted by Zaneta Skimina, pictured above right, and Michael Dwyer, and it's a must for anyone interested in Van Gogh.

Phil Grabsky paints a picture of the artist like never before, framing each shot of each piece that fully immerses you in Van Gogh's style and brush stroke. His film goes into great detail of the behind the scenes work involved in creating the perfect exhibition, from the colour they paint the walls, to how they decide where each painting hangs and why the order is important.

Zaneta studied modern art in Fellini's art studio, and worked in Fellini's art gallery in Berlin for two years. She is a supervisor in Movies@Gorey. Gorey man Michael Dwyer recently completed his final-year at UCD, where he studied history and politics.
