Picasso & Braque Go to the Movies

About the film

A documentary that looks at how early filmmaking influenced the Cubist painters Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Produced by Martin Scorsese and Robert Greenhut, Picasso and Braque go to the movies is a cinematic tour through the effects of the technological revolution, specifically the invention of aviation, the creation of cinema and their interdependent influence on artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.

With narration by Scorsese, and interviews with art scholars and artists including Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel and Eric Fischl, the film looks at the collision between film and art at the turn of the 20th Century, and helps us to realise cinema’s continuing influence on the art of our time.
