This annual film series returns for an examination of Kansas City’s own home-grown cinema auteur, Robert Altman.

The mutually supportive but tortured relationship between the troubled artist Vincent Van Gogh (Tim Roth) and his brother Theo (Paul Rhys) is the subject of this drama, which according to critic Roger Ebert “generates the feeling that we are in the presence of a man in the act of creation.”

Rated PG-13; 138 minutes.

Presenters: Psychologist Barbara Baer, Ph.D., and Julie Farstad, MFA, professor of painting, Kansas City Art Institute.

Co-sponsored by the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center.
