Julian Schnabel: A Private Portrait chronicles the personal life and public career of the celebrated artist and filmmaker—you guessed it—Julian Schnabel.

Written and directed by Italy’s Pappi Corsicato (Another Woman’s Face), A Private Portrait details the Brooklyn-born Schnabel’s formative years in Brownsville, Texas; the beginning of his professional career in New York City in the late 1970s; and his rise in the ’80s to superstar status in Manhattan’s art scene as well as his international acclaim as a leading figure in the Neo-Expressionism movement.

The kaleidoscopic documentary blends of material from Schnabel’s personal archives, newly shot footage of the artist at work and play, and commentary from friends, family, actors and artists including Al Pacino, gallery owner Mary Boone, Jeff Koons, Bono and Laurie Anderson – not to mention Schnabel himself.
