Synopsis: Available June 3rd Only!

At 88 years-old, Audrey Flack holds a unique place in the history of contemporary art in America. Feminist, rebel, mother, painter, sculptor and teacher, she has had an often controversial 40-year career, evolved from Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s to Photorealism in the 1970s. One of the first women ever included in the famed Janson’s History of Art, Flack continues to create, explore, and inspire with her unique style and indomitable spirit. Queen of Hearts follows Flack as she takes her work in a new direction and reveals her long-term struggles as the mother of a child with autism. Flack has something deep and genuine to communicate to the world. She is a provocateur and a rebel, an example and an inspiration. Queen of Hearts is a moving portrait of an artist who is still testing, still experimenting, still searching.

Director's Statement

As a documentary filmmaker with a career that spans more than forty years, my subject matter has ranged from human rights and conflicts in Latin America to the arts. The unifying focus has been on characters of great idealism, integrity, and inspiration in their various fields of endeavor. My personal interest in Audrey Flack at this time in my career parallels my own concerns about continuing to create relevant and meaningful work in a fast-changing, youth-dominated cultural milieu. Although Flack calls herself a feminist, her work doesn’t fit into neat categories. She was not part of the mainstream of the feminist art movement, and, in fact, her work was reviled by some as overly feminine in subject matter and style.
