“Here is a film of great beauty and attention, and watching it is a form of meditation.”—Roger Ebert

Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s great 1564 painting The Procession to Calvary comes to life in this visually stunning, one-of-a-kind film. The acclaimed Polish filmmaker Lech Majewski re-creates Bruegel’s windmill-dominated tableau and tells the stories of some of the figures in the landscape. With Rutger Hauer, Charlotte Rampling, and Michael York. (91 mins., 35mm) Shown in conjunction with Painting Tableau Stage, an exhibition on view at Ohio State’s Urban Arts Space September 28–November 14. Visit uas.osu.edu for details.
