NEW YORK, NY.- Produced by Martin Scorsese and Robert Greenhut and directed by Arne Glimcher, Picasso and Braque go to the Movies is a cinematic tour through the effects of the technological revolution, specifically the invention of aviation, the creation of cinema and their interdependent influence on artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. With narration by Scorsese, and interviews with art scholars and artists including Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel and Eric Fischl, the film looks at the collision between film and art at the turn of the 20th Century and helps us to realize cinema’s continuing influence on the art of our time.

It was the turn of the 20th Century and the disciplines of art and science were about to converge in a way that would change our perception of the world forever. Produced by Martin Scorsese and Robert Greenhut, narrated by Martin Scorsese and directed by Arne Glimcher, PICASSO AND BRAQUE GO TO THE MOVIES is a virtual tour through the effects of the technological revolution, specifically the invention of aviation, the creation of cinema and their interdependent influence on Picasso And Braque’s invention of Cubism, the most radical shock in the history of Western Art.

For the first time, art removed itself from the pedestal and interacted with and incorporated elements of popular culture. PICASSO AND BRAQUE GO TO THE MOVIES takes us from Picasso and Braque’s early work in Paris circa 1900 and the Exposition Universal where the wonders of Modernism were revealed, and into the artists’ studios. Picasso and Braque first met in 1907 when they had independently arrived at a similar place in their work. Soon their work would be virtually indistinguishable from each other and their lives would be inseparable, their passion for aviation led them to renaming themselves Wilber and Orville.

It becomes startlingly apparent that the basic language of cinema was invented by 1912 as can be seen in over 120 clips of archival footage that are incorporated into the movie. Interviews with film and art scholars and artists including Chuck Close, Martin Scorsese, Julian Schnabel and Eric Fischl among others help us to comprehend the creative process in contemporary terms and cinema’s continuing influence on the art of our time. The evolution of their work and the artistic influences of Manet and Cezanne are also discussed. Five years of research in the international archives of film and the cooperation of Major Museums of the world made this film possible.
