JEAN COOKE: DELIGHT IN THE THING SEEN (2017)
WRITER & DIRECTOR
Short documentary about painter Jean Cooke, exploring her turbulent marriage in the early 1950s to fellow painter John Bratby and how she reclaimed her own sense of identity through her self portraits.
Producer: Ellys Harrison
"An engaging and imaginative take on the life and career of the painter Jean Cooke. It does an excellent job of synthesising archive, interview material and location-based sequences to open a window onto the world of an under-valued artist. The result is a mature, entertaining and illuminating" Patrick McGrady, Creative Director, Wavelength Films
