To commemorate the 350th year after Rembrandt’s passing Leiden Stad van Ontdekkingen and Generale Universiteit Leiden will organize a couple of events.
To commemorate the 350th year after Rembrandt’s passing, Leiden International Short Film Experience (LISFE) presents in collaboration with Studium Generale Universiteit Leiden, Leiden International Film Festival (LIFF) and Leiden Stad van Ontdekkingen a talk by Peter Greenaway.
As a filmmaker, artist and scholar, Peter Greenaway has always been heavily inspired by the paintings of the Dutch Masters, especially those of Rembrandt van Rijn.
His two films Nightwatching (2007) and Rembrandt’s J’accuse (2008), both fruits of his own in-depth study Nightwatching: A View of Rembrandt’s The Night Watch, deal directly with the life of the Leiden born painter and his most famous work.
To commemorate the 350th year after Rembrandt’s passing, Greenaway will return to Leiden to give a lecture on the painter’s influence on his own cinema.
The lecture will be followed with an interview with Greenaway by Dr Peter Verstraten of Film and Literary Studies at Leiden University.
