Film: The Orchid Seller

description


Join us for a screening of The Orchid Seller, a documentary film about Oswaldo Vigas by his son, UT alumnus and 2015 Venice film festival Golden Lion winner, Lorenzo Vigas.

The Orchid Seller – Lorenzo Vigas

Venezuela, Mexico, 2016, 75 min

  • Starring: Oswaldo Vigas, Jeannine Castes Vigas, Herman Vigas
  • Production: Malandro Films / Lucía Films

Oswaldo Vigas, a renowned Venezuelan painter, returns, in his 80s, to the town where he was raised, searching for a painting that was lost during his teenage years. If he finds it, he and his wife, Jeannine, will be able to complete an exhibition about the early stages of his career. This search becomes more than an opportunity to revisit the early influences on his art. During this exploration, he is confronted with a chapter of his youth that marked him for the rest of his life and defined him as a human being and as a creator.
