David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

A reception to meet the filmmaker, Bruno Wollheim, follows the screening. DVDs of the film will be available for purchase.

Filmed over three years, this documentary is an unprecedented record of a major artist at work. It captures David Hockney’s return from California to paint his native Yorkshire, England: outside, through the seasons, and in all weathers. David Hockney: A Bigger Picture tells the story of a homecoming and offers up a revealing portrait of what inspires and motivates today’s greatest living British-born artist.

"An unqualified, life-enhancing joy from start to finish!"
The Sunday Times (London)

"As gently hypnotic and fulfilling as one of Hockney’s own works." 
—Time Out London

"This film may well be the best anyone will ever make about Hockney’s process." 
—The Times (London) 

"inspiring . . . completely engrossing!" —Radio Times, Pick of the Day

"We keep coming back to this wonderful film, not just to enjoy now but for its lasting importance for future generations who want to understand Hockney’s art." —BBC Radio
