EDWARD HOPPER PAINTINGS RECREATED AS SETS FOR “SHIRLEY: VISIONS OF REALITY”

Edward Hopper helped define the visual identity of what life in America was for the average person in the 1920s-30s. His paintings like Nighthawks and Automat are deeply stitched into the fabric of what Americana is. Viennese director Gustav Deutsch created “Shirley: Visions of Reality“ as a tribute to Hopper’s compositional mastery. In Shirley, thirteen of Hopper’s paintings have been selected and reproduced as three-dimensional scenes in the film. These scenes tell the story of a woman, whose thoughts let us observe an era in American history. Check it out:
