Robert Indiana: American Dreamer
This documentary film takes as its subject one of the notable figures of the contemporary art scene. As a young artist, Robert Indiana came to prominence in the 1960s during the heyday of the Pop Art movement in New York City. He is perhaps best known for his iconic "LOVE" image, which was exploited and reproduced on everything from postage stamps to pajamas – and Indiana became the invisible artist whose work we all knew.
His oeuvre, not easily categorized, and often misjudged, combines bold, symbolic visual narratives with words, geometric figures, hard edges, and bright colors. Often indecipherable unless studied and decoded, Indiana's art is intriguing and full of historical and personal overtones; it is rich with references to American history, autobiography, works of literature, geography, politics and popular culture.
The hour-long portrait combines archival footage of Indiana at work in his studio with photographs, interviews, poetry, prose, and contemporary scenes to create a visual autobiography in the artist's own words and images.
