Picasso & Braque Go to the Movies

Picasso & Braque Go to the Movies


Martin Scorsese narrates a documentary exploring cinema's influence on cubist painters Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, and how it fuelled their fascination with time, space and motion. Artists Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel and Eric Fischl consider the thematic and artistic parallels that can be drawn between Picasso and Braque's works and early 20th-century films by the likes of Thomas Edison, Georges Melies and the Pathe brothers.
