...debuted at the prestigious Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, and went on to win Best Documentary at The Northampton Film Festival, as well as a Gold Medal at The Twenty-First Annual Monitor Awards, and was a Finalist at The 31st Annual USA Film Festival.


“A loving and entertaining tribute to an artist’s magnum opus.”

-The Full Frame Film Festival


The film had its national broadcast premiere on PBS, and was screened internationally on the BBC.  It was also presented at The British Library at Yale University as well as at The Rhode Island School of Design, New York University and The Grolier Club.


“A beautiful documentary.”

-Imagine 2000


“I was expecting a dry, worthy arts film,” said one broadcaster, “I got hit betweent the eyes with a sparkling, witty, irreverent gem.  Jason [Kessler, the director]’s utterly original style, distinctive sense of pacing and nose for the unguarded moment of insight shines through in every scene, delivering some of the funniest moments ever seen in a poignant and inspiring arts documentary.”
