Legendary artist David Hockney gives access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of a long life.
The film chronicles Hockney's vast career, from his early life in working-class Bradford, where his love for pictures was developed through his admiration for cinema, to his relocation to Hollywood where his life long struggle to escape labels ('queer', 'working class', 'figurative artist') was fully realised. Paradoxically, this escape to live the American Dream did not break the ties to the childhood that formed him.
Acclaimed filmmaker Randall Wright offers a unique view of this unconventional artist who is now reaching new peaks of popularity.
