At Eternity's Gate
Internationally acclaimed artist, Academy Award© nominated filmmaker (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Basquiat) and University of Houston BFA graduate, Julian Schnabel gathers an extraordinary team of Academy Award© and Golden Globe recipients to create a film about the creator of some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art, Vincent Van Gogh. Written by Lifetime Academy Award©--winning Jean-Claude Carrière and starring Academy Award© nominee Willem Dafoe (as Van Gogh) with a stellar cast including Oscar Isaac (Golden Globe winner, Inside Llewyn Davis) to create a film that is a work-of art in its own right.
“This movie is an accumulation of scenes based on painter Vincent van Gogh’s letters, common agreement about events in his life that parade as facts, hearsay, and scenes that are just plain invented. The making of art gives an opportunity to make a palpable body that expresses a reason to live, if such a thing exists. Even with all the violence and tragedy that has been associated with Van Gogh’s life, there is no doubt, his was a life lived rich with magic, profound communication with nature and the wonder of being. His unique perspective is one whose belief and vision make visible and physical the inexpressible. He seems to have transgressed death and encouraged others to do the same. This is not a forensic biography about the painter. It is about what it is to be an artist.”
