Harrogate Film Society Presents: Exhibition on Screen: Hopper - An American Love Story | Documentary | Dir. Phil Grabsky | 2022 | 94mins


Matinee: 2.30pm. Evening: 7.30pm.


Hopper's work is the most recognizable art in America. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art - but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?


This new film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush…


Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.


Hopper is a rare artist whose work is accessible to both the casual and critical observer.


Rothko, Banksy, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, and even The Simpsons have all been inspired by the unique way Hopper captured American life.


This Hopper documentary is not anchored to a specific exhibition, but still presents the customary mix of loving close-ups of the paintings, knowledgeable talking heads, and voiceover readings of original letters and diary entries. Hopper’s difficult early years are described, and then elevation to glory after meeting his future wife, Josephine Nivison.


Please note, tickets are limited to 70 in total for each screening - matinee or the evening show. Unreserved seating in screen 3. One wheelchair space is available. Please get in touch to reserve this if required:    contact.harrogatefilmsociety@gmail.com
