THE DRAUGHTSMAN’S CONTRACT

United Kingdom | 1982 | Peter Greenaway

THE DRAUGHTSMAN’S CONTRACT film still

Peter Greenaway’s brilliant breakthrough film is an elegant 17th-century tragicomedy about a cocky young British artist (Anthony Higgins) who contracts to do a series of drawings of a splendid country estate in exchange for sexual favors from his employer (Janet Suzman). But there’s more lurking beneath the surface of his impeccably rendered sketches than meets his eye. And it’s sinister. Michael Nyman composed the unforgettable music. Cleveland revival premiere! DCP. 104 min.

General admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D.holders, and those age 25 & under $8.

Masks are currently optional for moviegoers, but still encouraged. Learn more under the “Face Coverings” section at cia.edu/covid.

As a reminder, filmgoers can park for free in Lot 73 and in the Institute's annex lot, and should enter CIA via nearby Entrance C. Click here for a map.
