    ROCKLAND — High-definition screenings of Portrait of the Queen, a new documentary about the late Queen Elizabeth II of Britain, will be presented at the Strand Theatre from Dec. 30 - Jan. 4. The film is an original portrayal of Queen Elizabeth's story from a new perspective: through the photographic portraits of her, as shared by the extraordinary photographers who accompanied and often created the image of the British monarchy itself. 

    Special focus is given to each of the Queen’s most intense and intimate portraits, contextualized by the photographers who portrayed Her Majesty – Brian Aris, Jason Bell, Julian Calder, Chris Levine, David Montgomery, and John Swannell. In addition, sincere, spontaneous comments from British subjects alternate with conversations featuring photographer and Camera Press photo agency co-owner Emma Blau; Valentino Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli; actress, author, philanthropist and model Isabella Rossellini; and Susan Sarandon, actor and activist who met the Queen in person and gives viewers a more private, intimate reflection on the role, obligations and complexities of being a monarch. Also featuring British actor Charles Dance, winner of the Screen Actors Guild Award for the series The Crown.

    Running time is 1 hour 35 minutes.
