ALICE NEEL DOCUMENTARY


Dir. Andrew Neel (USA: 2007), 81 min.
As one of the greatest painters of the 20th century, Alice Neel reinvented the genre of portrait painting. Filmed by Neel’s grandson, Andrew Neel, the film consists of interviews from Neel’s friends, artists and scholars along with archival footage. The film documents her struggles as a single mother, a woman artist and as a painter who went against the rules. Alice Neel premiered at The Sundance Film Festival in 2007 and received the Audience Award in 2008 at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
