About the event
Spotlight Series: Director Christopher Nolan
Christopher Nolan CBE is a British-American filmmaker known for his lucrative Hollywood blockbusters
with complex storytelling. Nolan is considered a leading filmmaker of the 21st century, as well as a director who pushes the boundaries of what can be done in live action, from the semi-truck flip in The Dark
Knight to the Tesseract scene in Interstellar. Choosing to do as much as he can in camera instead of just
relying on CGI sets him apart from his film-making competition; his films will go down in history as
groundbreaking, beautiful and ambitious.
Gold Junction Presents has selected four films which highlight Nolan's career, illustrate his talent, and display his ambitious drive to shoot everything on camera, veering away from CGI. These films are remarkable and undeniably beautiful to see on a big screen.
Join us March 16, 2023 at 6:30 PM to view Inception. Learn more about this film below in a behind-the-scenes look.
Synopsis: “Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a thief with the rare ability to enter people's dreams and steal their secrets from their subconscious. His skill has made him a hot commodity in the world of corporate espionage but has also cost him everything he loves. Cobb gets a chance at redemption when he is offered a seemingly impossible task: Plant an idea in someone's mind. If he succeeds, it will be the perfect crime, but a dangerous enemy anticipates Cobb's every move.”
The rotating hallway fight scene in Inception has gone down in cinematic history as one of the most impressive scenes shot on camera. The massive rig was built to rotate the entire set, allowing the actors to become one with the rotating hallway around them, making the impacto of the scene far more tangible than had it been done with actors on wires in front of a green screen. The audience feels the gravity change for the actors and has a visceral, unconscious reaction to what they are seeing, making it all the more real.
