Tate Britain Film

Museum Premiere: Frank

My father, Frank Auerbach, works seven days a week and has the reputation of being something of a hermit. In the past this has only been fairly true; he saw films, went to the theatre and spent time with friends but these days he rarely leaves his corner of North London.

So when the exhibition now at Tate Britain opened in the Kunstmuseum Bonn in June 2015, I decided to go and film the show so that Frank could see how it looked.

I am a filmmaker and a little while ago we set up a projector and I filmed his responses to seeing the work after a break of up to 60 years.

This is a film that I had always thought I would never make.
