"Art is a job. It’s rolling up your sleeves, it’s putting in long hours, it’s making decisions and then regretting those decisions, it’s flying by the seat of your pants and trusting your gut, it’s lonely and it’s convivial and it never, ever lets you clock out. And of course all of this tends to be forgotten when the finished product appears, reviewed and regarded as though it had sprung fully formed into the world. By way of correction, On the Process brings together films that remind us of the sweat and the elbow grease behind artistic production, whether in the practice of filmmakers like Derek Jarman and Andrei Tarkovsky or in the studios (and in the often onerous daily lives) of Gustav Klimt, Edvard Munch, and Vincent Van Gogh. A collection of films that remind us that the finished product is only one part of the story."—Metrograph
