Cult film set in the swinging London of the late ’60s. It is the biography of British artist David Hockney interpreted by himself and his circle of friends. On its release, it caused a scandal because of explicit homosexual sex scenes.
Born in Manchester in 1939, Hazan trained in California where he moved in 1950s to study Motion Picture Arts at UCLA. He went back to the UK in 1960s joining the BBC Film Department and worked as cinematographer on television documentaries. By the end of the 60s he had directed docu-fiction films juxtaposing the pop-punk music and artistic scenario with the political context.
