Imagine - Gilbert & George: No Surrender
Directed by Chris Rodley
In this film, Alan Yentob enters the East End home of Gilbert & George where the couple have lived together for over four decades. During Yentob's tour of the house, the controversial artists share their love of collecting and reveal the collaborative and creative processes behind their work.
The Secret Files of Gilbert & George
France, 35 mins
Directed by Hans Ulrich Obrist
Filmed on the occasion of Gilbert & George's exhibition at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris by the curator of the exhibition, Hans Ulrich Obrist, The Secret Files of Gilbert & George is a fascinating and deadpan examination of the artists' famous archive and collection of objects in their East End London home. Described by Artforum as 'hilarious', The Secret Files of Gilbert & George is a profound and absorbing documentary that defies easy categorisation: an entertaining musing on life and art.
The Fundamental Gilbert & George
Directed by Gerald Fox
This film made for 'The South Bank Show', was originally broadcast in two-parts in February 1997. It profiles the artists throughout their successful career, beginning with their initial meeting at St Martin's School of Art in 1969, and examines their work from the early performance pieces such as 'The Singing Sculpture' to the controversial 'Naked Shit Pictures (1995) and beyond. Following them in their everyday life, the film goes behind the scenes of their East End London home and includes contributions from art critics Andrew Graham-Dixon, Sarah Kent and David Sylvester and from curator Norman Rosenthal.
The World of Gilbert & George
Directed by Gilbert & George
Written and directed by the artists themselves, the feature-length film The World of Gilbert & George is an extraordinary journey into the work of this lively and controversial duo. Set against the social and economic upheavals of the 1980s the film is both witty and macabre, containing what the artists describe as: "...ALL of our thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreads, dreams, loves, nightmares, disasters, prophecies, memories and tears."
