Every Picture Tells a Story: The Art Films of James Scott (region-free 2DVD)
Filmmaker James Scott has enjoyed a diverse career, ranging from early experimental-art documentaries on key 1960s figures such as David Hockney, Richard Hamilton, Claes Oldenburg and R B Kitaj, to work with the radical Berwick Street Collective, independent features and the Oscar®-winning 1982 short A Shocking Accident. The son of celebrated painter William Scott, his film Every Picture Tells a Story is his sensitive, exploratory portrait of his father's early years in working-class Northern Ireland of the 1930s and his entry into the art world. Bringing together films totalling more than four hours, this long-overdue collection celebrates the talented filmmaker and explores his art films. All the films included have been newly remastered. 2DVD set with special features.
