Breaking The Fourth Wall: Rothko's Rooms
2000, 120 Minute Running Time
Join the Denver Film Society and Curious Theatre for an exclusive screening of Rothko's Rooms May 30th at the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax. ROTHKO’S ROOMS, produced and directed by David Thompson is a journey into the world of Mark Rothko (1903 to 1970), who in the period from 1940 into 1960’s was one of the leading American Painters in the Modern Art world. The unique thing about this educational documentary is that it goes beyond mere facts and history. Through a combination of action, interviews, archival elements and additional footage, the documentary story penetrates Rothko’s abstract view of the world, unlocking the door to Rothko’s abstract work. This is a beautifully crafted documentary film well worth watching on its own.
