Synopsis

In 2007 Spanish artist Miquel Barcelo was commissioned to create a huge work of art for the dome ceiling of one of the UN conference rooms in Geneva. He created a spectacular 1000 square-meter painting that changes from every single point of view from which it can be seen, a metaphor for the different realities and cultures that worldwide delegates meeting in this room represent. But the creative process for this masterpiece was full of difficulties, taking the artist to the edge of having to abandon a project, with all that this would mean for his reputation and the high media expectations the project had already created. This film takes us into the most intimate side of this unique creative process.
