Event Description

The Mill and the Cross (Lech Majewski, Poland 2011)

As part of a series of special events accompanying the exhibition Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible, there will be a showing of the movie The Mill and the Cross.


The film focuses on a few episodes – out of the hundreds of scenes and characters – depicted by Flemish Renaissance master, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, in his Procession to Calvary (1564, Kunsthistorisches Museum). The narrative unfolds a series of vignettes representing everyday peasant life, intertwined with monologues from some of the  most prominent characters of Bruegel’s work, including the painter himself, who explains to the viewer not only some of the symbols conveyed through his image, but also his own working methods while creating it. Starring: Rutger Hauer, Charlotte Rampling and Michael York. This film is offered conjunction with the Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible exhibition taking place at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between February 10 and April 29, 2018.
