Writer: Adam Low
Director: Adam Low
Cast: Francis Bacon, Peter Beard, Paul Danquah, Daniel Farson, David Sylvester, David Warner

A documentary approach to Francis Bacon (1909-1992), the painter of violence and human deformation. The documentary is fulfilled with Bacons impressive presence and his commanding and seductive voice. The film shows a masterpiece that is marked by the crimes and incidents of the twentieth century and a life that is ruled mainly by excesses and secrets.

Lovers, bullfighting, animal carcasses, movement analysis and “Falling in Love again“ by Marlene Dietrich: Francis Bacon`s Arena shows in associative mountings and a soundtrack composed by Brian Eno, cinematic analogies to the excesses, ghosts and formal ambitions of one of the greatest painters of the twentieth century.
