The Impressionists Film Series

The BAC will be presenting the BBC drama The Impressionists, as a two part series hosted by Sandy Cook. The lavish production shows how the impressionists stuggled to break into the closed art hierarchy of the French art establishment of the 19th century. It's told through the eyes of Monet, who tells stories about himself, Renoir, Bazille, Cezanne, Manet, Degas, and others, based on actual letters and other documents of the time.

The film will be shown in two 90 minute parts, with discussion to follow each night.

Part 1- Tuesday, September 23

Part 2- Tuesday, September 30

Both nights begin at 7:30 pm at the Boatworks. Admission is free.
