RMIT Culture Film Series: Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)
RMIT Culture’s new film series: The Best Films You’ve Never Seen, will screen some of the ‘new’ classics from the BFI’s ‘The Greatest Films of All Time’, featuring films you might never had a chance to see on the big screen (or you’re excited to rewatch!)
Once a decade the BFI’s Sight and Sound magazine asks critics to select the best films ever made, and has been uniting global film critics, programmers, curators, archivists, and academics since 1952. RMIT’s own Adrian Danks and Alexia Kannas contributed to the list, and throughout the year we’ll be screening some of the films that have made the top 100 for the first time, starting with Spirited Away (2001) at The Capitol on Tuesday 21 February.
Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)
Winner of Best Screenplay and Queer Palm awards at the Cannes Film Festival, Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a story of creativity and desire against the backdrop of an isolated island in Brittany in 18th Century France. Join us to celebrate World Pride as we screen this burning romance exploring themes of sexuality, art, and societal norms of the time.
