    Produced and narrated by Martin Scorsese, the "Picasso and Braque Go to the Movies" from art dealer-producer-director Arne Glimcher delves deep into the relationship between film and the visual arts. Featuring interviews with Martin Scorsese, Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel etc.

    “Painting always wanted to suggest movement, and suddenly here was movement,” said Bernice Rose, a longtime curator at the Museum of Modern Art and now director of Arne Glimcher’s gallery, curator of the exhibition “Picasso, Braque and Early Film in Cubism” and the person who proved intersection between the history of early film and early Cubist years.
    The documentary follows no single throughline. Rather, Glimcher assembles a hypothetical collage, counterposing various theories and personal angles on the subject, while the two most discussed juxtapositions – the relationship between fine art and early cinema, and the oddly symbiotic kinship of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, both enthusiastic cinephiles - reign at film’s center.

    The documentary includes abundant archival film clips.
