Hockney weaves together a portrait of the multifaceted artist from frank interviews with close friends and never-before-seen footage from his own personal archive. One of the great surviving icons of the 1960s, David Hockney may have started his career with almost instant success, but in private he has struggled with his art, relationships, and the tragedy of AIDS, making his optimism and sense of adventure truly uplifting. Hockney is funny, inspiring, bold, and visionary.
