| DVD

Frank Auerbach, works seven days a week and has the reputation of being something of a hermit. In the past this has only been fairly true; he saw films, went to the theatre and spent time with friends but these days he rarely leaves his small corner of North London. So when the exhibition which travelled to Tate Britain opened in the Kunstmuseum Bonn in June 2015, film maker Jake Auerbach decided to go and film the show so that his father could see how it looked a little while ago they set up a projector and filmed his responses to seeing the work after a break of... anything up to 60 years. The result is a film that unfolds an obsessive painter's personal manifesto (citing references as diverse as Morecambe & Wise, Gauguin and Shakespeare) which is woven into the relationship between father and son.

Documentary about the reclusive artist Frank Auerbach. Rarely leaving his home in North London, Frank Auerbach's life, once filled with culture and experiences, is now extremely sheltered. When he was approached by the Kunstmuseum Bonn in Germany expressing an interest in exhibiting the native German's work, Frank's refusal to travel sparked an interest in his film-maker son, Jake. As Jake travelled to Germany to see his father's work, he took the opportunity to film the space so that Frank could see his pieces displayed in the museum. With a camera also recording Frank's reaction to the exhibition, Jake created this documentary which gives a real impression of the artist's process as well as the strong-as-ever relationship between father and son.
