Celebrate the giant of modern art on the big screen! Hailed as the most successful exhibition in Tate Modern’s history, this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition is captured on screen with exclusive new footage from MoMA New York.

Audiences are invited to enjoy an intimate, behind-the-scenes documentary about this blockbuster exhibition with expert contributions from those who knew Matisse as well as curators, historians, Tate Modern Director Nicholas Serota, and MoMA Director Glenn Lowry. Also featured are breathtaking, specially commissioned performances by Royal Ballet principal dancer Zenaida Yanowsky and jazz musician Courtney Pine. Acclaimed British actor Simon Russell Beale brings insight and emotion to the words of Henri Matisse himself, while actor Rupert Young (Merlin) narrates.

“The way the film captured Matisse at work, bringing his artistry to life—including resonant readings from Simon Russell Beale—was genuinely inspiring.” —Apollo Magazine
