Visit to Picasso: painting on glass

"'Visite à Picasso' is a classic documentary by dir. Paul Haesaerts which features the frequently used footage of Picasso painting on glass while a camera films him from the other side. The trick of filming thru (sic) glass allows the viewer to witness Picasso's true genius as he paints his famous Torros with just a few well–placed brushstrokes. Shot in beautiful black and white in Picasso's home in Vallauris, the film is a poetic treatment of the master–painter."

Horseplay: Discussing Philip's Work At His Waimate Farm

Horseplay is a short 16mm documentary made by Simon Perkins about the New Zealand painter Philip Trusttum. The film presents a brief snap–shot of the artist and his surroundings at his farm in Waimate. The approach of the documentary makes no attempt to disguise the role of the filmmaker. In this way it pays homage to the Direct Cinema traditions through its use of hand–held camera, voyeuristic shots and off–camera audio.

The film was made in 1990 by: Simon Perkins; Peter Bannan; Vivienne Stone; Peter Evans; Robert Sarkies; Michael Brown; Philip Trusttum; Lee Trusttum; Peter Leech; James Wallace.
