  Every Picture Tells a Story: The Art Films of James Scott on DVD [read more]
  Living art
  Filmmaker James Scott has enjoyed a diverse career, ranging from early experimental art documentaries on key 1960s figures such as David Hockney, Richard Hamilton, Claes Oldenburg and R B Kitaj, to work with the radical Berwick Street Collective, independent features and the Oscar®-winning 1982 short A Shocking Accident.

Every Picture Tells a Story, released by the BFI on 28 August, brings together seven newly-remastered films in a long-overdue DVD collection of this talented filmmaker's work. The 2-disc set includes audio Q&As with James Scott and an illustrated booklet.

The highlight of the collection is Every Picture Tells a Story (1984), Scott's sensitive, exploratory portrait of his father, the celebrated painter William Scott, covering his early years in working-class Scotland and Northern Ireland of the 1930s and his entry into the art world.

Also featured are James Scott's art films, which include such diverse artists as Stuart Brisley, Jamie Reid and Hannah Wilke.

The Every Picture Tells a Story DVD will be launched with a special screening and Q&A with James Scott at BFI Southbank (NFT3) on Wednesday 16 August at 20:40. Tickets are on sale now at the link above.
