“Paris, Luminous” at the Kimbell
Woody Allen’s latest, Midnight in Paris, has no doubt whetted some appetites for all the crazy, self-indulgent, and revolutionary talents who flocked to urban France in the first two decades of the 20th century. The Kimbell – in conjunction with its current exhibit Picasso and Braque: The Cubist Experiment, 1910-1912 – screens Perry Miller Adato’s 2010 PBS documentary Paris, The Luminous Years: Toward the Making of the Modern. It focuses on the weird-ass innovations in visual art, music, film, and writing in Paris from 1905 to 1930. There are archival interviews with artists as diverse and eccentric as Cocteau, Stravinsky, Miro, Chagall, Copland, and Duchamp. The movie screens 2pm Sunday (June 12) in the Kimbell auditorium. It’s free with regular admission.
