A Bigger Picture screening

 

Director Bruno Wollheim introduces David Hockney: A Bigger Picture. Filmed over three years, it captures the artist’s return from California to paint the East Yorkshire landscape of his childhood and his move away from photography to find renewal in nature, working outside for the first time, through the seasons and in all weathers. As the film reaches an epic climax, a revealing portrait emerges of what inspires today's greatest living British artist.
