Julian Schnabel est un peintre néo-expressionniste et un cinéaste américain né le 26 octobre 1951 à New York.

Biography

La famille de Julian Schnabel quitte très tôt New York et il passe son enfance dans la petite ville de Brownsville, Texas. Il étudie les Beaux-arts à l'université de Houston où il obtient son Bachelor of Fine Arts, puis à la Whitney Museum of American Art à New York. Il expose seul pour la première fois en 1979 à la Mary Boone Gallery sur la Cinquième avenue et participe à la Biennale de Venise en 1980. Il devient rapidement une figure importante du courant néo-expressionniste.

C'est aussi un ami proche de l'architecte canadien Frank Gehry qui a bâti sa maison dans les années 1980.

En 1996, il commence une carrière de réalisateur avec Basquiat qui est un film biographique sur l'artiste américain Jean-Michel Basquiat. Son film suivant, Avant la nuit (Before Night Falls), est l'adaptation du roman homonyme de Reinaldo Arenas. Le Scaphandre et le Papillon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) réalisé en 2006 est l'adaptation du roman Le Scaphandre et le Papillon de Jean-Dominique Bauby. En 2010, il poursuit ses adaptations littéraires avec Miral d'après le roman de Rula Jebreal.

Depuis 2010, il expose à Londres, à Milan et Paris, une sélection de photographies Polaroid prises depuis 2002, qu'il retouche à la peinture pour mieux en souligner les points saillants. Ces photographies sont prises avec une chambre photographique imposante de format 50 × 60 construite spécialement par Polaroid.

The first third of the film is told from the main character's, Jean-Dominique Bauby (Mathieu Amalric), or Jean-Do as his friends call him, first person perspective. The film opens as Bauby wakes from his three-week coma in a hospital in Berck-sur-Mer, France. After an initial rather over-optimistic analysis from one doctor, a neurologist explains that he has locked-in syndrome, an extremely rare condition in which the patient is almost completely physically paralyzed, but remains mentally normal. At first, the viewer primarily hears Bauby's "thoughts" (he thinks he is speaking but no one hears him), which are inaccessible to the other characters (who are seen through his one functioning eye).

In the film, Arenas, who was openly gay, is born in Oriente in 1943 and raised by his single mother and her parents, who soon move the entire family to Holguín. After moving to Havana in the sixties to continue his studies, Reinaldo begins to explore his ambitions, as well as his sexuality. After receiving an honorary mention in a writing contest, Arenas is offered the chance to publish his first work. Through his work and friendships with other openly gay men (such as Pepe Malas and Tomas Diego), Arenas manages to find himself.
