Pico Museum screens films at the Whaling Museum Auditorium

The Regional Directorate for Culture (DRC), through the Pico Museum (MP), promotes in partnership with MiratecArts association the screening of award-winning films at the Auditorium of the Whaling Museum, starting next Friday; admission is free.
On December 29, the screening of the film "The Square" by Ruben Östlund is scheduled for 9 PM. It was the winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and at the European Film Awards in the Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor categories. The film tells the story of a respected curator of a contemporary art museum in the course of an existential crisis.
During the month of January, the Pico Museum also hosts, in partnership with MiratecArts, the 4th edition of Pico festival Mountain. Some of the events featured in the programme of this cultural project will be held at the Museum, which will promote the screening of five award-winning films at the Auditorium of the Whaling Museum, always on Tuesdays at 9 PM.
On January 2, the Museum will screen the film "Lady MacBeth" by William Oldroyd (United Kingdom, 2017), which portrays rural England in 1865. It is inspired on the 19th century tale entitled "Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District" by Nikolai Leskov, later adapted for opera. The film makes the tragic portrait of a young woman who wants to conquer her independence in a world dominated by men.
On January 9, this initiative will present the film "On the Milky Road" by Emir Kusturica (Serbia/United Kingdom / USA, 2016). This is a story of passion and forbidden love that will lead the main characters into to a series of fantastic adventures. It won two Palmes d'or at the Cannes Film Festival.
On January 16, "Mountains May Depart" by Jia Zhang-Ke (China/France/Japan, 2015) is the title of the film in exhibition. It travels to a deeply changing China and to Australia in late1999 to portray the emotional dilemma of a young woman divided by the passion of two childhood friends.
On January 23, the programme includes the screening of the film "Sworn Virgin" by Laura Bispuri (Italy/Albania, 2015). Filmed on the archaic mountains of Albania, it focuses on the difficult odyssey of a woman heading for modern life and female emancipation in the Italian city of Milan.
On January 30, the film "Embrace of the Serpent" by Ciro Guerra (Colombia, 2015) will be screened at the Auditorium of the Whaling Museum. It travels to the heart of the Amazon forest, where the last survivor of a powerful shaman, a priest, makes contact with an American ethnobotanist in search of a secret sacred plant capable of teaching how to dream.
The Regional Directorate for Culture informs that this and other events may be consulted in the Cultural Agenda of the CulturAçores Portal at the following address:
