Henri-Georges Clouzot concentrates upon a real-life enigma in The Mystery of Picasso. While we are treated to several scenes of the legendary Spanish artist at work. As with Pablo Picasso's paintings, this documentary is meant to be experienced, not understood. The in-progress paintings displayed in The Mystery of Picasso were destroyed by the artist after the film was completed, making this documentary a "Must See." Tuesday, January 21 at 7:00pm.

This film is a part of Hopewell Theater's ongoing series,  The Art of Living Well , featuring inspiring films, speakers and interactive discussions exploring ways of cultivating serenity, meaning and a deeper connection to one’s self and the world.

Last Chance!
BECOMING NOBODY
closes Thursday!

Hopewell Theater pays tribute to spiritual leader Baba Ram Dass, born Richard Alpert, who recently passed away at the age of 88. Ram Dass was an inspiration for and will continue to inspire HT's ongoing series, The Art Of Living Well.

Becoming Nobody (2019) truly represents the core arc of Ram Dass’ teachings and life. His ability to entertain and his sense of humor are abundantly evident in a conversation that brings us around to address the vast question of ultimate freedom. Becoming Nobody is the quintessential portal to Ram Dass’ life and teachings.
