To commemorate the centenary of the sculptor's birth, on October 10, 2001, this documentary reveals for the first time the sublime singularity of the work and career of Alberto Giacometti, who died on January 11, 1966.
The enigma of Giacometti superbly unravelled.
An unending quest brought into relief by those who knew or discovered the artist (Sabine Weiss, Balthus, Jacques Dupin, Roger Montandon, Jean Starobinski, Ernest Scheidegger, Jean Laymarie and Ernest Pignon Ernest).
To understand the extraordinary universe of this 20th century visionary, director Michel Van Zele explores the various sources of Giacometti's inspiration and his unique conception of the head, be it sculpted, drawn or painted.
