The Mystery of Picasso One Day Only

When: Sat., March 9, 5:30 p.m. 2019
Phone: 510-642-0365

Clouzot sets up a camera behind a translucent surface so that the maestro’s every painterly gesture is recorded. Paintings emerge from the effortless frenzy of flourishes, some successful, some a mimicry of Picasso performing himself—“superficial,” he cries out, then revises his work, backtracking, shifting weights, collaging, adding color, imposing new ideas in a fluid process. Now and then the director approves, to which Picasso responds, “At least it’s a painting.” Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, this colorful glimpse of the seventy-five-year-old Picasso captures the nature of his creative process, a spontaneous revelation of form in continual transformation.
