An intimate and innovative film about English-born, often California-based artist David Hockney and his work, honoring its subject through creative risk-taking. Director Jack Hazan creates an improvisatory narrative-nonfiction hybrid, featuring Hockney, a wary participant, as well as a circle of his friends, capturing the agonized end of the lingering affair between Hockney and his muse, an American named Peter Schlesinger. The result is at once a time capsule of hedonistic gay life in the 1970s, an honest-yet-tender depiction of gay male romance, an invaluable view of art history in action, and a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.

Frost Art Museum-FIU Chief Curator Amy Galpin will introduce the film in the context of Hockney’s canon.
