“Red” by John Logan directed by Daisy Walker
Starring Michael Samuel Kaplan as Mark Rothko with David Meyers
“There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend… One day the black will swallow the red.” Says artist Mark Rothko to his assistant. Mark Rothko is in his New York studio in 1958, painting a group of murals for the expensive and exclusive Four Seasons restaurant. He gives orders to his assistant, Ken, as he mixes the paints, makes the frames, and paints the canvases. Ken, however, brashly questions Rothko’s theories of art and his acceding to work on such a commercial project.
