Don’t miss the chance to see history in the making with this special screening and discussion with Gary Oldman, Kazuhiro Tsuji, David Mainowski and Lucy Sibbick

Make-Up Artist magazine, with Focus Features and Official Make-up Partner – M·A·C, presents a special VIP screening of Darkest Hour starring Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James and Ben Mendelsohn. The film takes place during World War II, a riveting time when Winston Churchill (Oldman) must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler—as the fate of Western Europe hangs in the balance.

A panel discussion before the screening will feature Oldman and prosthetic make-up and hair designer Kazuhiro Tsuji, make-up supervisor David Malinowski and make-up and hair artist Lucy Sibbick—who will talk with Make-Up Artist publisher Michael Key about the artistry and collaboration behind the Churchill make-up.

“Without these make-up magicians, Darkest Hour wouldn’t be the special film that it is,” says Key. “This screening will be the first time this international team will speak publicly about this flawless illusion.”

“… When considering Darkest Hour, I couldn’t conceive of making the film unless Kazu said he could do the make-up. If the master says no, then it’s no. But he saw something, some possibility of transforming me into Churchill. And as a true artist, he couldn’t resist the challenge,” says Gary Oldman in an exclusive interview for Make-Up Artist magazine.

There will be a wine and champagne reception at 5:30 p.m., preceding the panel discussion* at 7 p.m. and screening which promptly starts at 8 p.m. (Doors close promptly at 6:50 p.m.)

The event will take place at the SilverScreen Theater at Pacific Design Center, 8687 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood, Cali. (best entrance located on N. San Vicente Blvd. Enter blue building under Pacific Design Center sign, located to right of fountain).
