GEORGIA O'KEEFFE LANDSCAPES [DOCUMENTARY]
Georgia O’Keeffe was the most important American painter in the 1940’s, when she decided to move to New Mexico and radically change the themes in her work. The stunning desert landscapes changed the way she painted - and inspired her for the next 50 years. Isolated at her beloved ranch, she discovered a new color palette and fresh technique, inspiring a whole generation of new artists along the way. Her life story is one of courage and resilience. A museum dedicated to her work became the most visited attraction in the town of Santa Fé.
Shot over the course of several months, the documentary revisited the exact spots that O’Keeffe painted at Ghost Ranch and other locations in New Mexico, captured the historical retrospective at Tate Modern in London in 2017, and reconstructed details from O’Keeffe’s secretive late years through the stories of two of her closest caretakers and confidants. Produced in collaboration with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, in Santa Fe, it’s a truly moving and surprising portrait that includes over 70 artworks of one of the most important artists in the world.
