This Compelling and Moving Documentary Premieres Monday, June 9 2014 on HBO
HBO’s next documentary Remembering the Artist: De Niro, Sr. is a moving portrait of the painter told by those who knew him best. The film weaves together archival family footage and interviews with the subject himself, as well as with art experts, artists who worked alongside him and, most affectingly, his son. The documentary was an official selection of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and gives a fascinating glimpse into the personal and professional life of the artist whose talent went largely unrecognized as the pop art movement swept the nation.
Directed by Perri Peltz and Geeta Gandbhir, Remembering the Artist: De Niro, Sr. premieres Monday, June 9th at 9pm on HBO.
Watch a preview of Remembering the Artist.
