Dir: Randall Wright
113 mins, 2014, UK
Tue 25 Nov 19:00
Hockney is the definitive exploration of one of the most important artists of his generation. For the very first time, David Hockney has given access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of a long life. The film chronicles his vast career, from his early life in working-class Bradford, where his love for pictures was developed through his admiration for cinema, to his relocation to Hollywood where his life long struggle to escape labels (‘queer’, ‘working class’, ‘figurative artist’) was fully realised. Acclaimed filmmaker Randall Wright offers a unique view of this unconventional artist who is now reaching new peaks of popularity worldwide, as charismatic as ever, and at 77 still working in the studio seven days a week.
This screening will be followed by a Satellite Q&A with David Hockney live from his studio.
Ticket prices: £10.00 full / £8.50 concessions.
