The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Flagstaff premiere of the acclaimed new film “At Eternity’s Gate” on Wednesday, Feb. 13 as part of the festival’s monthly Flagstaff Cinema Series. There will be one screening of the film at 7:00 p.m. at Harkins Flagstaff 16 Theatres.

Willem Dafoe – who stars as Vincent Van Gogh – has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in “At Eternity’s Gate”. He also received a Golden Globe nomination in the same category.

“At Eternity’s Gate” finds famed but tormented artist Vincent van Gogh spending his final years in Arles, France, painting masterworks of the natural world that surrounds him.

Julian Schnabel’s “At Eternity’s Gate” is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.

“At Eternity’s Gate” also features Mads Mikkelsen, Rupert Friend and Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac as Paul Gauguin.

“Dafoe’s acting is a tour de force.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“An impressionistic masterwork.” – Michael Nordine, IndieWire

A representative from the NAU Philosophy Department and Philosophy in the Public Interest will lead a discussion following the film screening.
