Synopsis

An intimate portrait of and tribute to one of the leading lights of American abstract art: Samuel Francis. Here, we retrace Francis' life and career from his childhood in California to his artistic maturation in post-war Paris, his time spent in Japan, and his eventual return to the United States. A combination of interviews and scenes of the artist at work in his studio provide an insight into Francis' mysterious and complex personality, and its reflection in a body of work that is simultaneously diverse and singular.
