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.

"LSSU's size is perfect. I see familiar faces every day. There is a security and comfort in that. The professors are wonderful, and there is a lot of interaction in the smaller classes. The level of attention students get is the same as at a small private college, but at a great price." [ more ]
