Art Beats: Tintoretto: A Rebel in Venice (PG)

A documentary celebrating the 500th anniversary of the birth of the last great artist of the Italian Renaissance. 

With enchanting narration by Helena Bonham Carter, this documentary celebrates the 500th anniversary of the birth of the last great artist of the Italian Renaissance. It will explore the rivalry among the most important Venetian artists of the 16th century: Tintoretto, Titian and Veronese.

This visually spectacular new art film explores Tintoretto as the true mirror of Venice. A one-of-a-kind genius, open-minded, restless, brave and with a strong love for freedom—as well as unstable and elusive—he reflected the true spirit of the lagoon city.

Now the work of the artist dubbed a ‘proto-rockstar’ by David Bowie and ‘the first film director in history’ by Jean-Paul Sartre can finally be experienced up close in a stunning cinema experience, featuring special guest Peter Greenaway.
