Gauguin in Tahiti - Paradise Lost traces the legendary life story of Paul Gauguin, who left France for Tahiti feverishly in search of deep immersions into lush nature, for feelings, visions and colors, ever purer and brighter.

Audiences join this journey from Tahiti to American museums including New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C, and Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, where Gauguin's finest masterpieces are now preserved. 

Gauguin in Tahiti - Paradise Lost takes us on the trail of a story that has become myth.

Marking the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death: for the first time ever, ALL of his paintings will be shown in ultra-HD on the big screen!

Leonardo da Vinci is widely acclaimed as the world's favorite artist.  Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius; but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all - his art. 

His peerless paintings and drawings are the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as this cinematic production presents every single attributed painting, in ultra-HD quality, as never seen before on the big screen.

Key works include: The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de' Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.  The film also looks afresh at da Vinci's life - his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day - through the prism of his art.

This is the definitive production about Leonardo, and the first to truly tell the whole story.

The production runs approximately one hour, 25 minutes.
