This French-Danish biopic tells the story of Paul Gauguin and his desire to return to the South Seas after coming back to Paris, where he faced challenges in his personal life and in gaining acceptance for his radical style by the art world. It features performances by Donald Sutherland as Gauguin and Max von Sydow as August Strindberg. (90 min., in English with some subtitled French and Danish, rated R). 

These programs are presented in partnership with the IU Cinema and are sponsored in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes. The talks and films are free and open to the public.
