STAY ART HOME – Volume 1
Every week throughout the lockdown, Quai 36's team recommends you a selection of cultural activities : movies, art, or music, to cultivate one's mind and curiosity from home.
Captive from Sarah Polley and Noreen Halpern, 2017.
Adaptation from the eponymous novel by Margaret Atwood, famous for her dystopia The Scarlet Handmaid, and based on real facts, this mini-series retraces Grace Marks' story, a young woman sentenced to death in 1859 for the murder of her master and housekeeper. The series follows the psychologist who, years later, is charged with assessing whether the young woman is mentally responsible for these crimes.
As its name suggests, this series captivates the viewer from the outset, plunging us into the young woman's mental universe. As the story is told by Grace herself, one can not tell whether this is the truth or are these events just a figment of her imagination?
The Salt of the Earth by Wim Wenders, 2014
Wim Wenders followed the great photographer Sebastião Salgado who travelled the world to cover the major events of his time.
Between documentary and biopic of extreme finesse despite some difficult contexts, this film is a treasure full of humanity that does not hold back from declaring its love for our planet and its mysteries.
This film is available for rent and/or buy on Itunes and rent on Google Play.
