A magic realist tribute to the enduring creative spirit of two octogenarian New Yorker artists, Double Portrait blends the mediums of paint, dance and memory. Filmed on the Blackmagic Cinema, the Arri Amira and 16mm with dreamy vintage lenses; this hybrid documentary chronicles two artists and the NYC art scene in the 60’s. The film mixes verite footage with fantasy.
