Bosch: Garden Of Dreams (Spain/2016—directe­­d by José Luis López-Linares, 90 min

  • Detroit Film Theater at the DIA

    5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI (map)

    42.359505 -83.064316

  • We will meet an hour before the show in the beautifully restored Crystal Gallery Café on the balcony level inside the theater - a charming place for enjoying locally produced soups and baked goods or a glass of wine. I sit near the cash register.
  • Meet at 1:00 so we can chat and snack before the 2:00 film. I like to sit in the balcony, then it is easy to return to the Crystal Gallery after the show for a debriefing discussion.  La Feria, a Spanish Restaurant which is on campus, is closed Sundays. However, http://www.sevarestaurant.com/detroit-menu says it has Sunday hours and is within walking distance if the weather is cooperative.  Seva has international vegetarian cuisine including Mexican.

    This year, Spain’s Prado Museum unveiled Bosch: The Centenary Exhibition, commemorating the fifth centenary of the painter's death. Co-produced by the Prado, this immersive new documentary focuses on the most important and iconic work by Bosch: The Garden of Earthly Delights. Through conversation among artists, writers, philosophers, musicians and scientists, regarding the personal, historical and artistic significance of the fever dream that is Bosch’s picture, the film continues a discussion that began 500 years ago when it is believed that the painting was commissioned to Bosch. We have very little data on the identity and biography of Bosch, and as the film’s narrator points out, “At the end of a novel, the writer reveals the mystery. In this case, the author does not want you to solve the mystery, he wants you to stay in it.” In Spanish with English subtitles. (90 min.) 

    “It is one of the greatest enigmas. Do you have an explanation?” –William Christie, conductor of Les Arts Florissants
