Sedona International Film Festival presents the Great Art on Screen series with “Picasso: A Rebel in Paris”. The film will premiere in Sedona on Tuesday and Sunday, July 16 and 21 at 3:30 p.m. at the festival’s Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.

Great Art on Screen is a series of documentaries featuring an in-depth look at the most extraordinary and groundbreaking art masters of their time.

Fifty years after his passing, we embark on a journey through Pablo Picasso's Paris, amidst sunshine and shadow, convictions and contradictions, from a young, impoverished foreigner to one of the most important icons of the 20th-century.

The film moves continuously in and out of the Musée Picasso in Paris, that has the largest existing collection dedicated to the painter with 6,000 masterpieces and 200,000 pieces of archive material and follows Picasso through the Parisian neighborhoods where he lived, from the early days in ateliers with no heating to the large middle-class apartments where his success began.

“Picasso: A Rebel in Paris” is a physical and intellectual journey to gain a deeper understanding of his work and spirit.

The Great Art on Screen Series is generously sponsored by Goldenstein Gallery.
