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, outside, through the seasons and in all weathers. It tells the story of a homecoming and gives a revealing portrait of what inspires and motivates today’s greatest living British-born artist.

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

"An affectionate portrait of David Hockney who has come back to the land of his birth to find new springs for his art." - The Financial Times
