WITH POST-SCREENING Q&A WITH PRODUCER PHIL GRABSKY

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from the superb exhibition at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to the streets of Paris. With exclusive access to rare and diverse works, this film tells the fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit of perfection.

Frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsession and failing eye sight, but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, Degas kept many of his drawings and sculptures private during his life, but now these can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. This film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th century.
