Enjoy a Sunday afternoon watching films selected by local artists! Art Flicks is a monthly series featuring Calgary artists, curators and designers who introduce films which have influenced and inspired their work.

Our first Art Flicks of the spring season will feature inspired artist Sondra Meszaros who will introduce Belle de Jour (1967). She will be discussing her academic and artistic exploration of representations of female sexuality in relation to the themes of the film.

We are thrilled to be hosting this event at Model Citizen, the seductive and art-filled speakeasy located on the same block as Model Milk.

Synopsis: Catherine Deneuve’s porcelain perfection hides a cracked interior in one of the actress’s most iconic roles: Séverine, a Paris housewife who begins secretly spending her after­noon hours working in a bordello. This surreal and erotic late-sixties daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Buñuel is an examination of desire and fetishistic pleasure (its characters’ and its viewers’), as well as a gently absurdist take on contemporary social mores and class divisions. Fantasy and reality commingle in this burst of cinematic transgression, which was one of Buñuel’s biggest hits.
