Join Alliance Française as the world premiere of the film titled “The Voyages of Matisse, Chasing Light” will be showcased on 7 May at 8pm. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Raphaël Millet.
In 1930, the 60-year-old Matisse feels one last time the urge to travel and encounter otherness. He boards a boat to Polynesia, which will eventually come to influence the final 25 years of his artistic life, taking him to the cusp of contemporary art. Polynesia will also catalyze a search for himself, leading Matisse to voyage to the heart of his own spirituality.
