ギャガ配給作品『レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチ展 in シアター』（原題：LEONARDO LIVE）の公開が4月21日（土）シネマート新宿、Bunkamuraル・シネマにて公開となることが決定いたしました。 本作は昨年2011年11月から2012年2月までロンドン・ナショナルギャラリーで開催された「Painter at the Court of Milan」の模様を、貴重な舞台裏と専門家による解説をまじえて描くドキュメンタリー。2枚の“岩窟の聖母”、世界初公開となる“救世主キリスト”など、レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチが生涯に描いた絵画で現存する僅か15点のうち9点が集められたこの前代未聞の展覧会には毎日早朝から行列ができ、地元ロンドン民でも鑑賞困難といわれました。 この、二度と観ることができない＜奇跡の展覧会＞を大スクリーンで体感するという、“美術×映画”の世界初コラボに、美術ファンならずとも圧倒されること間違いなしです。
歴史上最も偉大な芸術家、レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチ。彼が生涯に描いた絵画で現存する僅か15点のうち9点が集められた前代未聞の展覧会「Painter at the Court of Milan」が2011年、ロンドン・ナショナルギャラリーで開催された。前売り券は即完売し、わずかな当日券を求め、毎日長蛇の列が出来たというこの展覧会が、映画館のスクリーンで甦る。 美術史に語り継がれるミステリー、“2枚”の「岩窟の聖母」の展示、今回初めて一般公開される「救世主キリスト」など、二度と見ることができない奇跡の光景の連続は、美術ファンならずとも、息をのむに違いない。さらに、この歴史的な展覧会の舞台裏を収めた貴重な映像や、他では決して聞くことのできないダ・ヴィンチ専門家たちによる解説もふんだんに盛り込まれ、この上なく贅沢な芸術空間がここに創造された。

Story サンフランシスコに住む写真家ダニエル・ホルダー(ベン・ギロリ)には、愛してやまない一人息子ミッキー（ヴィクター・グラント）がいた。しかし息子はアメリカを飛び出し、日本の高知県のとある町に英語教師として赴任、画家としての才能も発揮していた。その順調な生活も束の間、1年もたたずにミッキーは交通事故に遭い命を落としてしまう。悲しみに暮れる父ダニエルには、太平洋戦争で自らの父を失った過去があった。戦争で父を日本兵に殺され、息子をも日本で命を失ってしまうおぞましい悲劇―。 日本への抑えきれない嫌悪感と偏見を抱えつつも、自らを奮い立たせ、息子が遺した絵をかき集める決意で単身日本を訪れたダニエルは、高知をさまよう。その地で、ミッキーを弟のようにかわいがっていた原先生（清水美沙）や、かつての上司（山崎一）、同僚（misono）に思いのほか温かく迎えられ、意外なまでに高知の人々に愛されていた息子の生活を目の当たりにし、激しく戸惑う。そんなある日彼は、息子の教え子であった知的障害を持つ少女（穂のか）からプレゼントされた絵によって思いがけない事実を知る。 ミッキーが同僚の紀子(高岡早紀)と結婚していたこと、そしてふたりの間に生まれていた、新しい命の存在を―。
Beverly Hills, CA ― The master of the Hollywood montage sequence and the business activities of Twentieth Century-Fox between the years of 1935 and 1965 will be the topics explored by Anne Friedberg and Peter Lev, respectively, who have been selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as the ninth pair of Academy Film Scholars.
The Academy’s Institutional Grants Committee selected the two scholars for the honor on the basis of their manuscript proposals. Each will receive $25,000 from the Academy to aid in the research and writing of their respective projects.
Friedberg, the chair of the Critical Studies Division in the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California, will explore the life and work of Slavko Vorkapic, known throughout his career as Hollywood’s resident montage expert. Her book will examine Vorkapic’s comprehensive filmography as a special effects cinematographer and montage sequence unit director as well as how his work has influenced subsequent generations of film writers, directors and editors. The book will be titled Montage in Hollywood: The Cinematics of Slavko Vorkapic.
Lev, a professor of electronic media and film at Towson University in Maryland, will delve into the history of Twentieth Century-Fox during the three-decade period the studio was helmed by Darryl Zanuck and Spyros Skouras. The book will focus on both the studio’s Los Angeles-based production business and the New York-based distribution and exhibition business as well as the executives who ran them. It will also examine the contributions of the artists behind many of Fox’s successes including John Ford, Elia Kazan, Shirley Temple, Marilyn Monroe, and Gregory Peck. Lev’s book will be titled Twentieth Century-Fox: The Zanuck-Skouras Years.
The new Academy Film Scholars will receive the first half of their $25,000 grant at a luncheon this April. The remaining half will be presented upon completion of the manuscripts, when Friedberg and Lev will present their projects in lecture form at a public Academy event.
Established in 1999, the Academy Film Scholars program is designed to “stimulate and support the creation of new and significant works of film scholarship about aesthetic, cultural, educational, historical, theoretical or scientific aspects of theatrical motion pictures.”
Friedberg and Lev join 12 other Academy Film Scholars who are currently working on projects: Tino Balio, University of Wisconsin, Madison; John Belton, Rutgers University; Donald Crafton, University of Notre Dame; Jane Gaines, Duke University; Jan-Christopher Horak, University of California, Los Angeles; David E. James, University of Southern California; Richard B. Jewell, University of Southern California; Stuart Liebman, Queens College of the City University of New York; Charles Musser, Yale University; Steven J. Ross, University of Southern California; Shelley Stamp, University of California, Santa Cruz; and Emily Thompson, Princeton University.
Academy Film Scholars who have completed projects are writer Cari Beauchamp; Thomas Doherty, Brandeis University; Dana Polan, New York University; and David Rodowick, Harvard University.
Academy Delegation In Iran for Cultural Exchange with Fellow Filmmakers
Eight members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, including Academy President Sid Ganis, are currently in Tehran for several days of educational and cultural exchange with Iranian filmmakers, students and others from the creative community there. Several months of planning came to fruition late last week when the group touched down at Iman Khomeini Airport.
The Academy group was invited and is being hosted by Iran’s House of Cinema, an association of artists, craftsmen and technicians working in motion pictures. The trip is not sponsored by the U.S. State Department and there are no plans to meet with representatives of the Iranian government. In addition to Tehran, the group will visit Shiraz and Esfahan before returning to the United States on March 8.
The Academy delegation includes actresses Annette Bening and Alfre Woodard; writer Frank Pierson; writer-director Phil Robinson; producer William Horberg, executive Tom Pollock; Ganis; and Ellen Harrington, the Academy’s Director of Exhibitions and Special Events. Documentarian James Longley, who was already in Iran working on a project, is also participating. The visit was organized as part of the Academy’s International Outreach initiative, which has previously sent filmmakers to Vietnam for similar meetings and seminars with local filmmakers.
In addition to meetings with the House of Cinema’s Board of Directors and members, the group’s itinerary currently includes seminars on various aspects of filmmaking including acting, writing, directing, producing and marketing; meetings with film students in both Tehran and Esfahan; and a visit to the set of an Iranian film currently in production.
“We have been very warmly received and even just our first few days here have been truly enlightening,” said Ganis. “We have been able to do everything on our planned itinerary and in fact, more opportunities are presenting themselves and we are thrilled to take advantage of those as well.”
In addition to the personal exchanges, each of the Academy members will introduce a film from his or her career. Screenings of Iranian films are also scheduled for the delegation.
Beverly Hills, CA ― Nominations for the 81st Academy Awards were announced today (Thursday, January 22) by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Sid Ganis and Oscar® winner Forest Whitaker.
Ganis and Whitaker, who won an Academy Award® for his lead performance in “The Last King of Scotland” (2006), announced the nominees in 10 of the 24 categories at a 5:38 a.m. PT live news conference attended by more than 400 international media representatives. Lists of nominations in all categories then were distributed to the news media in attendance and via the Internet on the official Academy Awards Web site, www.oscar.com.
Academy members from each of the branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories – actors nominate actors, film editors nominate film editors, etc. In the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories, nominations are selected by vote of multi-branch screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees.
Nominations ballots were mailed to the 5,810 voting members in late December and were returned directly to Pricewaterhouse-Coopers, the international accounting firm, for tabulation.
Official screenings of all motion pictures with one or more nominations will begin for members this weekend at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater. Screenings also will be held at the Academy's Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood and in London, New York and San Francisco.
All active and life members of the Academy are eligible to select the winners in all categories, although in five of them – Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject and Foreign Language Film members can vote only if they have seen all of the nominated films in those categories.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2008 will be presented on Sunday, February 22, 2009, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.
