A documentary on Henryk Musialowicz,
a 95 year old maestro of metaphysical art.
The film, in addition to portraying an artistic maveric, follows difficult negotiations between the artist and the officials from Mielnik, a small village on the Polish/Belaurssian border. The village, for 20 years the painting laboratory of Musialowicz, plans to build his museum adopting an old, small one story cinema building. The Maestro’s dreams are much bigger.
