Hockney by Randall Wright (UK, 2014, 112 min.). “I lived in bohemia, and bohemia is a tolerant place,” says David Hockney, recalling a time when he lived and painted in the electric blues of Hollywood swimming pools. One of the great surviving icons of the 1960s, Hockney’s career may have started with almost instant success but in private he has struggled with his art, relationships, and the tragedy of AIDS, making his optimism and sense of adventure truly uplifting. From his formative years in the British pop art scene to his inkjet-printed computer drawings, the charismatic artist recounts his life and creative process in conversation with director Randall Wright during an exclusive tour of Hockney’s studio and archives.

“An engaging and affectionate tribute to one of the art world’s most loveable characters.” – Wendy Ide, The Times
