British Museum: Hokusai PG

A groundbreaking documentary and exclusive private view of the forthcoming British Museum exhibition Hokusai: beyond the Great Wave. Focusing on the work, life and times of Katsushika Hokusai, Japan’s greatest artist, the film uses stunning close-ups and expert insights to illustrate his wide-ranging influence and extraordinary legacy. Hokusai spent his life studying and celebrating our common humanity as well as deeply exploring the natural and spiritual worlds, using the famous volcano Mount Fuji as a protective presence and potential source of immortality. He is an artist who influenced Monet, Van Gogh and other Impressionists, and is the father of manga and the only painter with his own emoji. Introduced by arts presenter Andrew Graham-Dixon, and featuring artists David Hockney, Grayson Perry and Maggi Hambling.
