Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favourite 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. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as Exhibition on Screen presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, never seen before on the big screen. Key works include The Mona LisaThe Last SupperLady with an ErmineGinevra de’ BenciMadonna LittaVirgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others. This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’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. To be released on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story. —Exhibition on Screen

Ticket price: $10

A Q&A with director Peter Nelson and producer Sally Roy will follow the screening.

Our complex food system rests on the wings of the honey bee and the commercial beekeepers that move them from farm to orchard pollinating the crops that produce the food we eat. The Pollinators is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. We will talk to farmers, scientist, chefs, economists and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees and what it means to our food security. —thepollinators.net
