Synopsis

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)

"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

"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

"A gentle, inspiring film... completely engrossing!" - Radio Times, Pick of the Day
