This is the Trailer for REGINA B, a short documentary/portrait of the painter Regina Bogat, who at the age of 84 had her first solo show in New York City, of work from the 1960’s. These paintings had only been seen once at her loft party in Chinatown back in the ‘60’s.
A part of the 10th Street art scene, Regina was the only woman artist working in the Bowery Studio building with Mark Rothko, James Brooks, Ray Parker and other Abstract Expressionists. A natural raconteur and independently minded painter, a friend of Ad Reinhardt and Eva Hesse, Regina subsequently married the painter Alfred Jensen and has continuously painted throughout her life.
A film by Frances Barth, co produced by Ron Nakahara
