My National Gallery, London

Sedona International Film Festival presents the Exhibition on Screen series with “My National Gallery, London”. The film will premiere in Sedona on Tuesday and Sunday, June 4 and 9 at the festival’s Alice Gill-Sheldon Sheldon Theatre.

The National Gallery of London is one of the world’s greatest art galleries. It is full of masterpieces, an endless resource of history, an endless source of stories. But whose stories are told? Which art has the most impact and on whom? The power of great art lies in its ability to communicate with anyone, no matter their art historical knowledge, their background, their beliefs.

“My National Gallery, London” gives voice to those whose lives have been touched by the Gallery – from security guard to director, everyday visitor to celebrities and members of the royal family. Claudia Winkleman, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Jacqueline Wilson and HRH Princess Eugenie all let us in to their deeply personal connection with the National Gallery.

Each interviewee identifies the one artwork which means the most to them, with this diverse cross section of society making surprising choices of both well-known masterpieces and hidden gems. These stories are used as a lens through which to explore the 200-year history of the National Gallery and what the future may hold for this spectacular space.

Everyone in this film has a special connection to the National Gallery, making for some heart-warming, moving and surprising stories.

Beloved celebrities, devoted staff members and world class experts come together to paint a unique portrait of this iconic British institution for its 200th birthday.

The Exhibition on Screen Series is generously sponsored by Goldenstein Gallery.

“My National Gallery, London” will be shown at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre on Tuesday and Sunday, June 4 and 9 at 3:30 p.m.
