Ellis Faas - Beautiful and Underrated

Ellis: "As a late teenager, I visited the Tate Gallery in London and was blown away by a Francis Bacon triptych. It made a great impression on me because of the use of colour - it was unnerving and stunningly beautiful at the same time. Bacon inspired many experiments I did over the years. I now think it has become something of my own and hasn't much to do with Bacon any more."

Considering her specialism in make-up, this is a film that presents a unique perspective from an innovative practitioner, whose consideration of how colour can affect mood and character is key to her general vision.
