Description

With 100 major museum exhibitions under his belt, Fernando Botero is one of the world’s most popular artists. At 87 years old, the legendary Colombian painter and sculptor—whose signature, eminently meme-able style, "Boterismo," depicts Renaissance-style figures bursting with flesh and dimension—has historically been an intensely private person. But this doc changes all that. Shot in Colombia, France, Italy and more, this in-depth and inspiring portrait weaves together decades of archival images and interviews with historians, curators and art critics to reveal the creativity and convictions at the heart of the man known as “El Maestro.”
