ABOUT THE LECTURE

“LANDSCAPE” (approximately 90 mins)

Filmmaker Peter Greenaway lectures on his filmic fascination with landscape and presents sections of his new, soon-to-be-released film WALKING TO PARIS, as well as clips from THE DRAUGHTSMAN’S CONTRACT, A ZED AND TWO NOUGHTS, and THE FALLS, and his short films “The Reitdiep Journeys,” “Vertical Features Remake,” “Water,” and “Erosion.”

ABOUT THE FILM

Peter Greenaway’s witty and artful DROWNING BY NUMBERS tells the tale of three generations of women, all with the same name – Cissie Colpitts – who share an aversion to their marriages. With the reluctant help of a local coroner, they plot to put an end to their troubles. Greenaway beautifully captures the stunning pastoral landscapes in a film overflowing with metaphors and mathematical riddles. Starring Joan Plowright, Juliet Stevenson and Joely Richardson.
