A film that invites us to take a tour around the planet along with prestigious Catalan sculptor Jaume Plensa to discover how art can transform the way we are in the world, the way we see it, and live it. In times of noise, confrontation and smear campaigns, Plensa’s reflections with the camera have a contaminating shooting effect, full of poetry, beauty and a much-needed sense of peace. In a journey around the world with the artist himself through his emblematic installations in public spaces in Spain, France, Sweden, USA, Canada and Japan, we discover his simple philosophy based on the search for harmonious relationships between the work, the environment and human beings.
We proudly present this screening in partnership with Royal Scottish Academy (RSA), the first UK institution who exhibited the work of Plensa in 1992.
