Mark Rothko in his New York studio in 1958/59, having been commissioned to paint 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. Directed by Jeff Messer and featuring Dakota Mann and Marc Cameron. Contains adult language.
