Greenaway unveils his ‘Last Supper’

Filmmaker offers avant-garde take on painting

“The Da Vinci Code” made the painter’s “Last Supper” a key element of its bigscreen intrigues. But Brit filmmaker Peter Greenaway has a decidedly more avant-garde take on the Renaissance masterpiece for Milan’s Design Week, running April 16-21.

Greenaway, working with cinematographer and longtime collaborator Reiner van Brummelen, will project a super-high-resolution digital image of the painting in Milan’s Palazzo Reale art gallery, accompanied by sounds and moving images.

While Greenaway is known for visually sumptuous but less-than-action-packed films such as “Drowning by Numbers” and “The Draughtsman’s Contract,” his “Last Supper” will clock in at a more audience-friendly running time of less than 20 minutes.
