| "Portrait" of an artist
The documentary follows artist Billy Pappas and his entourage of advocates on a journey to meet with prolific artist David Hockney. For whose opinion Billy anxiously awaits, believing Hockney to be in some capacity the catalyst agent for the sale of the drawing and/or the furtherance of his career.

First time writer, director Julie Checkoway delivers a well constructed film. The palatable soundtrack hints at emotions but leaves you to draw your own conclusions about Billy Pappas, about David Hockney, about art and about life.

Whether you adore or resent the artist, admire or pity him, after viewing the film Waiting for Hockney, you will consider him.
