FILM TITLE: THE SECOND ACT OF ELLIOTT MURPHY”
PRODUCTION YEAR:

GENRE: Music Documentary

PREMIERE STATUS:  USA Premier

LANGUAGE: English

WRITER / DIRECTOR: Jorge Arenillas

CAST: Elliott Murphy, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel,
Willie Nile, Brian Ritchie, Olivier Durand,
Matthew Murphy, Ernie Brooks, Danny Montgomery

              Gaspard Murphy, Françoise Viallon-Murphy

CINEMATOGRAPHY BY:Jorge Carrion

EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: Jorge Arenillas

SYNOPSIS:
“There are no second acts in American lives”
(F. Scott Fitzgerald)
"The Second Act of Elliott Murphy" is a long feature documentary about American rocker Elliott Murphy. Born in New York in 1949, he became one of the “new Dylans” in the seventies, and most critics from the era praised albums like "Aquashow" or "Just a story from America". Still, ironically, his truly American music-style made a bigger connection with European audiences, which transformed him into a cult artist in many countries overseas.

The title, "The Second Act of Elliott Murphy", contradicts the quote of Fitzgerald (a personal hero for Murphy) and it is a reference to the French reinvention of the artist in the late eighties. Because of Elliott Murphy moving to Paris and the increase of European tours, his fanbase became stronger in many countries like France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Sweden or Denmark. Some of these fans contributed to the making of the film by providing rare graphic materials of all eras of the artist.

SYNOPSIS:“Marcus Jansen: Examine and Report” is a film about an American Painter who went from selling his artwork on the streets of New York to museums around the globe. Marcus Jansen is a combat veteran of "Desert Storm",  that not only lived the horror that is war, but turned his experience into an extraordinary career as an artist which began by selling his work on the corner of Prince St. and Broadway in New York City. That young group of artist were known as “The Prince St. Kings”.  Politically driven, Jansen’s work is a commentary on world affairs and has painted his way into an elitist industry. This film examines the state of the Art industry through artists such as Basquiat,Banksy, J.R., Jansen,  and delves into the politics and propaganda of the art world and what it took for those artists to break into an exclusive club.

These are some of the questions raised as we follow fiercely independent New York artist Robert Cenedella in his artistic journey through decades of struggling for creative expression. A student, protégé and friend of German artist George Grosz, Cenedella is now passing on the legacy of Grosz’s approach to art, in the very same room where Grosz taught. ART BASTARD is a funny, touching, and insightful look inside the maverick mind of a true original.

CINEMATOGRAPHY BY: Jakob Stark, Christoph Valentien
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: Christian Beetz

SYNOPSIS:
They are icons in their cities and their collections represent the cultural identities of nations. These world-renowned museums are in constant negotiation with changes in the world. Every year, millions of visitors’ queue to view the treasures that hang on their gallery walls. In this eight-part documentary series, THE ART OF MUSEUMS, we encounter museums as living, breathing, beings: characters who have stories and face challenges. Together with art lovers like Vivienne Westwood, Marina Abramović, Ólafur Elíasson and Wolfgang Joop, our audience encounters some of the most powerful masterpieces in the world—and experiences just how alive these museums are...

THE ART OF MUSEUMS is not a classic documentary series about galleries displaying dusty old paintings. These films trace the turbulent and exciting biographies of each museum, from their survival of wars to their visions for the future. Despite being state symbols, they are nonetheless often in conflict with the politics of their respective countries. The Prado in Madrid, for example, faced bombing by Franco’s troops during the Spanish Civil War.

To this day, a host of conservators maintain and cherish the rescued works of art as a gesture of detachment from Spain’s dictatorial past.

The museums have witnessed fierce battles and great triumphs. Their lives are full of intrigue, hope and celebration—moments inscribed in their histories. We tell these stories through a multitude of perspectives, from exclusive archive material to interviews with museum directors and celebrities. Not to mention the internationally renowned hosts, who come face to face with the masterpieces of European cultural history and tell us their tales:

The series is accompanied by art historian Dr. Matt Lodder, a lecturer at the University of Essex, who reveals little-known anecdotes behind the paintings and contextualises the lives of the museums. He has set himself a goal: to convey art, as clearly and transparently as possible, always emphasising its proximity to real life.
