The 19th Century French artist Paul Gauguin is world renowned. In this movie, popular French actors dramatize his journey to Tahiti where he found new inspiration that forever changed his style of art and that continues to influence artists to this day.
The film company synopsis tells us: French artist Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was an innovator of modern art, known for experimenting with bold color and distorted proportions, along with his contemporaries Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne. By 1891, Gauguin was already well-known in artistic circles, but had grown tired of the civilized world and its political and moral conventions. Leaving his wife and children behind, he ventures alone to Tahiti, consumed with a yearning for new inspiration. Pushing deep into the Tahitian jungle, Gauguin meets Tehura, his muse, who will consume his mind and inspire his most iconic works of art.
The film is directed by Edouard Deluc and stars Tuheï Adams, Vincent Cassel
