Gagosian Gallery ~ Tribute To The Late River Phoenix

Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition by Gus Van Sant and James Franco.

"Unfinished" features the film, My Own Private River, which is a collaboration between Van Sant and Franco. After casting Franco in the award-winning film Milk (2008), Van Sant showed him the dailies and other footage that he had shot many years before forMy Own Private Idaho (© 1991 New Line Cinema Corp. All rights reserved), which starred River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves as street hustlers in Portland, Oregon. Much of this material did not make it into the final cut, and so Franco decided to fashion it into a new film, riffing off the original title.
