Summary:
"STILL tells the story of Clyfford Still's remarkable life and his indelible contributions to American art. Though not as well known as his contemporaries Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, Still was one of the leaders of the Abstract Expressionist movement and deliberately turned his back on the art establishment at the height of his career. Through interviews with leading art and social historians, contemporary artists, and former students, the documentary will reveal, for the first time, the detailed and compelling story of Still's life, the evolution of his work, and the reasons for his prominent and permanent place in American art"--Container.
