Catch a Free Screening of Goya at the Clark November 6

For Immediate Release

October 23, 2008

“The Many Faces of Goya” film and lecture series at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute continues with Goya on Thursday, November 6, at 7 pm. Each film in the series will be preceded by an introduction about the artist’s life. Following each screening will be an opportunity to discuss the artist and the film. The series is presented in cooperation with the Center for Foreign Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Williams College. Admission to the series is free.

This is a very rare opportunity to see Goya (1971, 134 min., in German with English subtitles, not rated), a massive Eastern European co-production, in its original widescreen glory. Derived from a novel by Lion Feuchtwanger, it’s an epic biography of the great artist directed by Konrad Wolf. The film will be introduced by Barton Byg, professor of German and film at UMass Amherst and founding director of the DEFA Film Library.

The series concludes on November 20 with Goya in Bordeaux (1999, 105 min., in Spanish with English subtitles, rated R). Mark Ledbury, associate director of the Clark’s Research and Academic Program, will lead the discussion.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, MA. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission is free November through May. Admission June 1 through October 31 is $12.50 for adults, free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID. For more information, call 413-458-2303 or visit
