David Driskell: In Search of the Creative Truth is a story about one of today’s most important artists and leading authorities on African American art. The film captures Driskell making collages inspired by his mentor Romare Bearden, documents him in conversation with National Gallery curator Ruth Fine, and painting at his easel in his Falmouth, Maine studio. The film also explores the give and take of his creative relationship with master print maker, Curlee Holton. It all results in powerful works that pull from abstract expressionism, African art/masks, Coptic art, modernism, cubism—the history of all art in the works of this wise and gentle man.  See the recent rave review by art critic John Yau: https://hyperallergic.com/497204/david-driskell-resonance-paintings-1965-2002/
