The definitive exploration of one of the most significant British artists of his generation

One of the great surviving icons of the 1960s, Hockney enjoyed almost instant success early on in his career but in private he has struggled with his art, relationships, and the tragedy of AIDS, making his optimism and sense of adventure truly uplifting. A feature-length portrait of the multifaceted artist which incorporates frank interviews with close friends and never before seen footage from his own personal archive. Hockney is funny, inspiring, bold and visionary. With a theatric release by Picturehouse Entertainment in the UK, and international sales represented by HandWay Select, the film was selected to be in competition for the Documentary category of the 2014 London Film Festival.

For the 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. I’m interested in ways of looking and trying to think of it in simple ways. If you can communicate that of course people will respond, after all everybody does look. His is a long-term one-man campaign against the pessimism of the world, mastering new media whether acrylic paint or iPad digits, in the search for a picture adequate to his sense of what it is to be alive.
