Synopsis
Alexander Calder, an American Masters special, is the first definitive portrait of the inventor of the mobile, a co-production of American Masters and Florentine Films/ Sherman Pictures LLC. The one-hour PBS program shows Calder at work in his studio, and features never before seen archival films and photographs. It includes contemporary shooting of dozens of works, seen as Calder meant them to be viewed, in dynamic motion. Interviews include: Arthur Miller, Ellsworth Kelly, I.M. Pei, Brendan Gill, Marla Prather, David Ross, Calder´s daughters and grandson, Sandy Rower and others. The film received rave reviews including "Pick-of-the-Week" in People and an ´A´ in Entertainment Weekly. Sherman made an appearance on Charlie Rose, who called the film "an extraordinary American masterpiece." Legendary agent Robby Lantz said it was "a masterful movie portrait," and Susan Lacy, executive producer of American Masters, described it simply as "the best artist portrait I´ve ever seen."
