The sculptor Dani Karavan is approaching 90 when Barak Heymann accompanies him on a journey to visit his famous monumental sculptures and memorials. Whereas Heymann captures the elegance and beauty of Karavan’s art, the artist himself is frustrated with the condition of the artwork that he had once designed with precise intentions. Along the way they meet admirers and critics, talk about politics and inspiration, and deal with Karavan’s deteriorating health and advancing memory loss. An insightful and humorous portrayal of one of Israel’s greatest artists.
