Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

Acclaimed artist Wang Wen-Chih has been taking part in various international art festivals in recent years. He represented Taiwan at the 2001 Venice Biennale. Using the natural materials of bamboo, rattan, and wood to express a profound serenity, and drawing on his memories of growing up in the mountains, Wang’s work displays both a unique vision and style in contemporary art. The directors follow in Wang’s footsteps as he gathers his material deep in the mountains, travels to Niigata and Shadoshima in Japan to construct his work, and while he mediates his creation. This documentary captures Wang’s attitude to life and his passion for nature in which both the work and the artist himself evoke the spirit of the mountain.
