A new documentary, voted one of the best ten US art films in 2020, explores the complicated and uncompromising life and work of one of the great American abstract expressionists. Using home movies and more than thirty hours of recently discovered audio tape with Still reflecting on his art, the art industry, critics and contemporaries, director and art collector Dennis Scholl retraces the life of the enigmatic painter. To round off the documentary about this remarkable man, of whom his friend Jackson Pollock said “Clyfford Still makes the rest of us look academic”, Scholl asked artists like Julian Schnabel, Mark Bradford and Julie Mehretu as well as museum directors, curators and a critic to contribute.
