Alexander Calder is the definitive portrait of one of the pre-eminent artists of the 20th century, and the inventor of an art form, the mobile. This acclaimed film shows Calder at work in his studio and never-before-seen archival films and photographs. It includes contemporary shooting of dozens of works, and features interviews with Arthur Miller, Ellsworth Kelly, I.M. Pei, Brendan Gill, Marla Prather, David Ross, Calder's daughters and grandson, Sandy Rower, and others. 


"An extraordinary American masterpiece."- Charlie Rose

"An incisive documentary that captures the boundless optimism and energy of its subject." - People

"The film does a wonderful job exploring and explaining the inspiration behind the artist. Like Calder's art, it's self-assured and singularly delightful." - NY Daily News
