Hockney by Randall Wright, UK, 2014, 112′

A portrait of one of the greatest living painters, who, in prudish 1960s America, spoke openly of his homosexuality through his highly personal and disruptive work. Randall Wright, thanks to Hockney’s own direct testimony, constructs a film which winds through period footage and an exclusive tour of the artist’s personal archive, between Los Angeles and his Yorkshire studio.
