David Hockney in “A Bigger Splash” New 4K Restorations!
October 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
UK | 1973 | DCP | 106 min.
Director: Jack Hazan
Filmed between 1971 and 1973, A Bigger Splash captures the established painter David Hockney as he struggles to produce work for a NY show and overcome the end of his relationship with longtime lover Peter Schlesinger. Shuttling back and forth in time, director Hazan depicts the decisive end to the Swinging London Youthquake where the no-longer young artist Hockney first found fame. “A glimpse, unequalled in its intimacy, of [Hockney’s] search for a reflection in the pools that he paints” (Alexander Walker, London Evening Standard). “A synthesis of documentary, cinema verite and psychodrama that’s entirely original, and as engrossing as the watcher wants it to be” (Derek Malcolm, Arts Guardian). A new 4K restoration will be screened.
