David Hockney is one of the most versatile and influential artists of our time. Here he invites us to take a visual stroll through his many paintings and explore the dimensions of time and space. In communicating a new sense of the space-time continuum, he injects into photography entirely new, life-like components. Hockney's sensuous theatre sets make us hear music with our eyes and see colours with our ears. In this film, documentary filmmaker, Gero von Bohm, paints a memorable portrait of a fascinating artist, whose work encourages us to see the magic and beauty in the small and the seemingly insignificant details of everyday life.
