EDWARD and JO HOPPER, THE VIOLENCE OF SILENCE

France (2020), 52 min.

Directed by Aventurier Catherine

„One day, I will write the true history of Edward Hopper. Nobody else can, as you will never fully know his character. It is worthy of Dostoevsky.“ Josephine will never write the true history of her husband, painter Edward Hopper. She will, however, remain the only keeper of his secrets, as the artist, timid and terse in interviews, likes to remain inscrutable. This mystery enthralls the audience and makes Hopper one of the most famous 20th-century American painters. Josephine is not only Hopper’s muse, she also aspires to a painting career. But how can a young artist coexist with such a genius? Can she sacrifice it all without turning resentful? 30 years after her death, we finally shift the focus to the woman in the shadows.
