‘One of the finest films I have seen about an artist and his work’ - Martin Scorsese.
‘Captivating...mysterious...shimmeringly, beautiful...’ - LA Times.
David Hockney is one of the greatest figures in modern art, and the best known British artist of his generation. This highly original film by director Jack Hazan (The Clash: Rude Boy), is a mesmerising reconstruction of Hockneys life portrayed in the moods, colors and tones of his paintings and follows the artist’s break-up with fellow painter Peter Schlesinger. The former lovers star as themselves, as do many of the subjects of Hockney’s paintings including his muse, iconic textile designer Celia Birtwell.
Offering a swirling view of the 1970s London art scene - this visual recreation of the paintings that made him famous captures the essence of both the artist and the era and is an invaluable cinematic record for the Hockney archives.
