Featured Film:

Jean Renoir Double Feature at the Seattle Art Museum

Tying in with their exhibit Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art, the Seattle Art Museum this Wednesday night only is presenting, on 35mm, a pair of films by director Jean Renoir, who in addition to be one of the greatest filmmakers of all-time, also happened to be the son of painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. A Day in the Country was shot in 1936 but left unfinished, it was assembled a decade later into a 40 minute featurette and remains one of the more astonishingly perfect short story films. French Cancan, from 1954, is a glorious celebration of color and music, intersecting love triangles and rectangles forming around the invention of the 19th century’s most scandalously silly dance craze. They are two of Renoir’s very best films, and the combination is one of the unmissable film events of the season.
