This documentary film offers a deeper look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. Combined with expert interviews, diaries and a startling visual reflection of American life, the film features footage of Cape Ann, where Hopper created watercolors that earned his first critical acclaim, and contributions from Dr. Elliot Bostwick Davis, guest curator of Edward Hopper & Cape Ann. Collectively, these accounts bring to life one of America’s most influential artists.
