ABOUT THE FILM
Widely considered Britain’s most popular artist, David Hockney is a global sensation. Now entering his 9th decade, Hockney shows absolutely no evidence of slowing down or losing his trademark boldness. The film focuses on two blockbuster exhibitions of Hockney’s recent work at the Royal Academy of Arts: A Bigger Picture 2012 and 82 Portraits and One Still Life 2016. Filmmaker, Phil Grabsky puts Hockney at ease and allows the intimacy of conversation to flow naturally and deeply. Here we don’t just look at portraits, we hear the lifetime’s worth of stories behind them.
