Artists on Screen

Posted Tuesday 12 Jul 2011

Critic Mark Amery has selected his top documentaries profiling artists for this showcase of NZ visual arts talent. Avery says "Occasionally I hear off-the-cuff comment that visual art doesn't make for good film or television. Nonsense! I'm sure they once said the same about sport. Sport like art succeeds onscreen because of strong storytelling, commentary, camerawork and personality." This impressive showcase of visual artist portraits proves how visual art can succeed on film. You can watch the films here.
