David Hockney in A Bigger Splash – New Restoration Premieres in New York with Q&As

A new 4K restoration of Jack Hazan’s A Bigger Splash opens at the Metrograph, New York City, Friday 21st June, with a special preview screening and party tonight 20th June at 11pm. There will be a series of Q&As during the film’s theatrical run.

A Bigger Splash

Described by Martin Scorsese as “one of the finest films I have seen about an artist and his work,” A Bigger Splash is an intimate and innovative film about David Hockney and the painting that transformed the art world. Hazan creates an improvisatory narrative-nonfiction hybrid featuring Hockney and his circle of friends, capturing the agonised end of the lingering affair between Hockney and his muse, an American named Peter Schlesinger. The result is at once a time capsule of hedonistic gay life in the 1970s, an honest-yet-tender depiction of gay male romance, an invaluable view of art history in action, and a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.
