A journey inside the world and mind of Vincent van Gogh who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on van Gogh’s letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented. France/UK/US, 2018, 110 minutes, rated PG-13, English dialogue

Community partner: Rockland Center for the Arts. RoCA members receiver the Rivertown Film member discount.

Discussion after the film with RoCA executive director Daly Flanagan, and Richard Kendall, author of two books on Vincent van Gogh.

Oscar Nominee: Best Actor

“By adamantly focusing above all else on van Gogh’s work — and its transporting ecstasies — Schnabel has made not just an exquisite film but an argument for art.”

– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

At Eternity’s Gate is at its heart not necessarily only about a particular individual. It’s about what it feels like to be an artist, to be overwhelmed and obsessed with the unavoidable need to bring art into the world.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
