Summary:
A fascinating look at the creative process, this unique documentary explores what happens when the artist Gottfried Helnwein takes on the role of Production Designer for a never-before-seen opera written by Israel's most famous playwright, Hanoch Levin. For Helnwein, the child has always been the symbol of innocence and innocence betrayed, a motif that persists throughout much of his work. But when the Israeli Opera creative team casts an adult to play the lead child, Helnwein must fight to preserve the opera's integrity and Levin's original vision.
