With the Winter 2024 Filmbar series, we present a series of films that explore the changing relationships between outer and inner perceptions of space through dramatic landscape cinematography. This series is organized in conjunction with “Klimt Landscapes.”
Directed by Raúl Ruiz. English. 131 min.
Gustav Klimt lived his life like he painted it – full of intensity, sensuality and passion. In this biographical fantasy, Klimt recalls the decadence of his past in feverish visions from his deathbed. Reflecting on his many torrid affairs and his struggles for artistic freedom, he travels back to the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. There, Klimt is introduced to a mysterious dancer, Lea de Castro, who emerges as his muse and the personification of his own erotic ideals and carnal desires.
