The Mystery of Picasso
April 21 at 2:00 (also at 4:30) in the East Building Auditorium.

Washington premiere of the digital restoration.
A new digital restoration of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s celebrated Le mystère Picasso features the famous artist in the act of painting for the camera. Clouzot, who built a reputation for suspenseful French thrillers like Le Corbeau (1943) and Le salaire de la peur (1953), invited his friend Pablo Picasso to explore the mystery of creation within a documentary format. The resulting film, interestingly, contains many cinematic tricks and surprises.
