Pollock & Pollock, by Isabelle Rèbre

2019 — 90’

Executive producer : Colette Quesson


Synopsis

This is the story of two brothers, two American painters, Jackson and Charles Pollock. Jackson began painting under the guidance of his elder brother Charles, and quickly rose to fame. When his life is taken from him in a car accident at 44 he has already brought a revolution into the world of painting and he becomes a legend. Charles remains a man, slowly building his art. In 2015, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice presented the works of the two brothers side by side for the very first time. In the light of the family correspondence, the film explores two different ways of being an artist: it revisits a myth and draws a painter from the shadows.
