Richard Donner: Superman, 1978, 137 min, Rated FSK 12, OmU

ADMISSION WITH VALID PETER SAUL EXHIBITION TICKET

Just before his home planet of Krypton explodes, Kal-El is sent to Earth by his father. As an adult Clark Kent (Christopher Reeve), he finds that he has superpowers. With these, he becomes Superman and fights evil.

Peter Saul deconstructs the impeccable hero in his pictures. He frames Superman with banalities and shows his dark moments of defeat, such as in Superman and Superdog in Jail (1963), in which he sits in jail with his costume torn, a toilet bowl beneath him from which Superdog drools with relish.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 2017, 9:30 PM

Shola Lynch: Free Angela and all Political Prisoners, 2012, 102 min, OmU

ADMISSION WITH VALID PETER SAUL EXHIBITION TICKET

This documentary depicts the life of young college professor Angela Davis. Through her political activism, she becomes embroiled in a kidnapping attempt that ends in a shootout, four deaths, and her name on the FBI's most-wanted list.

Peter Saul has portrayed the civil rights activist several times. The Schirn is showing the painting San Quentin #1 (Angela Davis in San Quentin) (1971), which shows her at the gates of the prison, tormented by three little pigs named "Justis," "Munny" and "Powur."

FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 2017, 9:30 PM

Francis Ford Coppola: Apocalypse Now, 1979, 153 min, Rated FSK 16, OmU

FREE ADMISSION

During the Vietnam War, military policeman Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) is sent on a dangerous mission to Cambodia. He is tasked with taking out renegade U.S. military Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who is waging his own war in the middle of the jungle as the leader of a rebel tribe.

Peter Saul was the first US painter to put the Vietnam War on canvas. His Vietnam paintings address one of the darkest chapters in American history. In the major work of this group of works, Saigon (1967), Peter Saul takes sides and expresses his anger at the atrocities committed by the US military in Vietnam, such as torture and sexualized violence.
