Sedona International Film Festival presents the Exhibition on Screen series with “Michelangelo: Love and Death.” The event will show in Sedona on Monday, June 19, at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre. This is the final event in a series of four featured programs.

The festival is the official host of the series, joining hundreds of theatres around the globe for this special exhibition on screen. Cinema guests can now enjoy unprecedented high definition access into the lives of renowned artists, their art and the fabulous museums and galleries that are the custodians of such masterpieces.

The spectacular sculptures and paintings of Michelangelo seem so familiar to us, but what do we really know about this renaissance genius? Who was this ambitious and passionate man?

Spanning his 89 years, “Michelangelo: Love and Death” takes a cinematic journey from the print and drawing rooms of Europe, through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican to explore the tempestuous life of Michelangelo. We go in search of a greater understanding of this most charismatic figure, his relationship with his contemporaries and his valuable artistic legacy.

Through expert commentary and Michelangelo’s own words, this film takes a fresh look at an enigmatic man whose life is celebrated in every mark and every stroke he made.

A giant artistic force and universally loved, discover why Michelangelo is without a doubt one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance — and perhaps of all time.

“Michelangelo: Love and Death” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Monday, June 19, at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members.
