Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

One of the contemporary art world's biggest superstars and an award-winning filmmaker (Before Night Falls, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), Julian Schnabel is a versatile artist and boisterous personality. Director Pappi Corsicato observes the master at work and takes a comprehensive look at the painter's life: from his formative years in Brownsville, Texas, to his meteoric rise in the New York art scene and eventual superstardom as the leading figure of the Neo-Expressionism movement. Schnabel is a joy to encounter in this intimate documentary, which also feature interviews with friends, family and fellow artists including Laurie Anderson, Al Pacino, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Koons and more.
