    Detail of Edvard Munch’s 1895 “The Scream.”

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of the great Norwegian artist, Edvard Munch, a ‘once in a lifetime’ exhibition was mounted in his home country, covering all of the artist’s greatest works. Blending dramatic re-enactment of events in Munch’s life with Marlow’s critical analysis and contributions from the curators and experts, this film originally had a worldwide cinema release. This shorter version offers a good introduction to Munch’s work and commemorates the anniversary of one of the world’s most important artists. (From the UK) (Documentary) PG
