Unique modern artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976) revolutionized the art of sculpture with his distinctive modernism, freeing sculpture from its stand  and adding movement to the art itself.

He rose to fame in the 1930s with his renowned Miniature Circus, but his modernist creativity skyrocketed with his wire sculptures, an invention he dubbed “drawing in space”.

Contemporary and friend with Duchamp, Miro,  and Mondrian, who have greatly influenced his evolution, this genius tinkerer, too often limited to his Mobiles, was fueled by artistic renewal, creating such unexpected shapes as his huge stabile sculptures now exhibited worldwide.

In light of the artist’s life, this film retraces this unique quest and explores the masterpieces that have marked the history of 20st century art.
