The Kimbell Art Museum Presents the Free Film The Flowers of St. Francis

The Kimbell Art Museum presents the film The Flowers of St. Francis (1950) at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 20, in the Museum auditorium. It is the second program in the Kimbell’s free film series Italian Realism, Redux and is approximately 90 minutes long.

In a series of simple and joyous vignettes, director Roberto Rossellini and cowriter Federico Fellini lovingly convey the universal teachings of Saint Francis: humility, compassion, faith, and sacrifice. Gorgeously photographed to evoke the medieval paintings of the saint’s time, and cast with monks from the Nocera Inferiore Monastery, “The Flowers of St. Francis” is a timeless and moving portrait of the search for spiritual enlightenment.

Offered in partnership with the Lone Star Film Society. No reservations necessary.
