This documentary is the work of 12 influential contemporary artists from all over the world in a cinematic experience that makes us ponder about art and the way we perceive it. From Theo Jansen and his Strandbeest, to Leandro Erlich and his surrealistic world; from Japanese master Susumu Shingu’s moving sculptures to Liliana Porter’s conceptual work and the magic of Spanish Maestro Antonio López García, among many others, we embark on a very intimate and fascinating conversation about the meaning of art, its limitless possibilities and the delicate process of creating a work of artistic magnitude for each one of these masters.
