Green Acre Video has issued two exciting videotapes of films produced and directed by Julius Kohanyi, an international award winner for his feature films and documentaries.

The first film on videotape, Rodin, takes the life of the artist full circle from the age of 19 to his death at 77. Included are references to Rodin's major sculptures: The Gates of Hell, The Burghers of Calais, The Thinker, Balzac, The Kiss, Hands of God, as well as Liberty, Thought, France, and many other woks on tour or no longer on display. Also included are rare sketches and photographs of himself and his contemporaries. The format of this presentation allows the artist to speak for himself in his own words about how he dared to break new ground in the art world of his time.
