Dir. Charlie Paul. UK/USA, 2019. 1h 25m.

Beginning with a blank 6ft x 8ft canvas, a monumental oil painting emerges depicting global unrest and religious mythology, inspired by masters Goya, Bruegel, and El Greco. An intimate portrait of former British war artist Peter Howson told through the development of a single work of art.

‘Mesmerising…A fascinating watch for anyone interested in modern art.’ Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

‘This one offers a neat twist – more about the painting than the painter.’ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
