Director Jack Hazan and writer David Mingay had access to David Hockney and his circle from 1971 to 1973, a critical period following his break-up of his relationship with Peter Schlesinger. As much an intimate study of love gone wrong as a portrait of an artist at work. (photo credits: Buzzy Enterprises)

Director


Jack Hazan caused two of the bigger splashes in 1970s independent British filmmaking. His portraits of David Hockney (A Bigger Splash, 1974) and The Clash (Rude Boy, co-d. David Mingay, 1980) fused documentary and fictional elements in a way that was highly controversial at the time. They clearly anticipate the post-2000 rise of celebrity driven 'reality' projects, whose content often proved anything but real.
