Final Portrait | dir. Stanley Tucci (2018)
94 minutes, English, with Hebrew subtitles

In Paris, 1964, artist Alberto Giacometti, at the height of his commercial success, happens upon his friend, the American art critic James Lord, and asks him to model for him. Lord agrees to devote himself to the painting for a few days, but days become weeks, and he finds himself caught up with the famous artist’s hedonistic lifestyle. The movie unveils a fascinating portrait of one of the best-known and popular 20th century artists, two years before his death, while completing one of his masterpieces.

Preceded by a short lecture by curator of the exhibition, Ronili Lustig .
