Exhibition on Screen: I, Claude Monet
Dir. Phil Grabsky. UK, 2017. 1h 27m. Starring Henry Goodman.
Based entirely on Claude Monet’s personal letters, this documentary tells the story of one of Europe’s greatest ever artists in his own words. The letters detail Monet’s joy of painting and the natural world, but also portrays a man who suffered from crippling bouts of depression and suicidal thoughts.
Narrated by actor Henry Goodman, the documentary takes us to the locations where Monet painted some of his most famous artworks and wrote these deeply intimate letters.
