Celebrate LGBTQ History Month
Wednesday, October 23  8:00 PM at Nyack Center
Directed by Jack Hazan
1974, USA, 106 minutes, documentary/fiction

A Bigger Splash dispenses with talking-heads to create an innovative film about the English-born, California-based artist David Hockney that honors its subject through creative risk. It is a time capsule of gay life in the 1970s, an honest depiction of male romance, and an invaluable view of art history in action: Hockney is seen putting the finishing touches on his masterpiece Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures), which sold for $90.3 million at auction in 2018, setting a record for a living artist. The film is a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.

Community Partners: Rockland County Pride Center, Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center, Rockland Center for the Arts. Members of these organizations receive the Rivertown Film member discount.

Post-film discussion about David Hockney with Carole Perry, art consultant, curator and former Artistic Director of the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center.

. . .remains one of the more uniquely hypnotic movies about the connection between presented life and pulsating art.  Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

An important flashpoint in the history of LGBT cinema.  Wes Greene, Slant
