Title: PAUL GAUGUIN: THE SAVAGE DREAM
Movie ID: VT2754
Movie Number: 2754
Description: Paul Gauguin lived by extremes. In 1901, he traveled to one of the most remote islands in the world, Hivaoa in the Marquesas: 750 miles from Tahiti, 4,000 miles from the coast of Peru. There he lived for the last two years of his life until his death in 1903 at the age of fifty-four. Paul Gauguin--The Save Dream explores the artist's obsessive search for a "savage" alternative to his own culture, which drove him to that far point of the earth and became a critical aspect of Gauguin's art and life. Shot on location in Tahiti and the Marquesas, the film focuses on Gaugiuin's final years and his monumental artistic achievement during that period. The story, to a great extent, is told in Gauguin's own words, revealing his unique philosophy of art, life, and civilization.

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas."
