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 23, 2023 at 6:30 PM to view Interstellar. Learn more about this film below in a behind-the-scenes look.
Synopsis: “In Earth's future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand (Michael Caine), a brilliant NASA physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth's population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind's new home.”
The Tesseract scene in ‘Interstellar’ is incredible and mind blowing to watch but the way they built the set is even more impressive. This is a scene that is a great example of how CGI can be used as a tool and not as a crutch in film making. If you can film as much as you can on camera and have real objects, in real lighting, it will always come across as more believable than if it was all done on a computer. The reason Chris is so successful as a director is due to his drive to create these sets that some believe to be impossible. Pushing the boundaries of film making is what gives us these timeless scenes and inspires future film makers to do the same.
