Roxie Theater: A Bigger Splash
July 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
New Restoration! When David Hockney’s beautiful lover, Peter Schlesinger, breaks up with him, it leaves David a complete emotional wreck. An artist, he suddenly finds himself unable to create anything, and is awash in depression and loneliness. After a time, David is able to find inspiration in his backyard swimming pool, and he begins a portrait of it. This unique docudrama presents a semi-fictionalized account of the story behind one of Hockney’s most popular paintings.
