A documentary about one of the giants of 20th century art – innovator, philosopher and social pioneer.

Meet Victor Vasarely (1906-1997), one of the main innovators of abstract art and art based on optical illusions.

Amazingly, Vasarely painted these extra-ordinary geometrical forms and patterns by hand, long before the advent of computer graphics. In this unique documentary the elderly Vasarely tells us about his creations, his theories and his lifelong mission: to promote a social art, available to all.

Meet him in the studio, visit his “Foundation” in Aix-en-Provence, and  marvel at the works and ideas which earned him a vanguard position in 20th century art.
