Pollock & Pollock 
A film by Isabelle Rèbre
Starring Stéphane Bak and Karin Viard

The film tells the story of two brothers, and two American painters: Jackson Pollock and Charles Pollock. In 2015, the two artists were exhibited side by side in two exhibitions at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and, on that occasion, many works by Charles Pollock came out of the cupboards. Through family correspondence, the film questions two ways of being an artist: it revisits a painter who had become a myth and brings another painter out of the shadows.
