A powerful portrait of Africa's most widely acclaimed contemporary artist. An insider's view of the artist's practice, the ingenious steps and thousands of hours of labor that convert used bottle tops into huge, opulent wall hangings. Behind the charming, easy-going artist we meet a man mysterious even to his dearest friends. The film circles around Anatsui -- we see the celebrated artist at the Venice Biennale, in his home town, inside his studio directing a score of assistants.

"This is a work of fiction but everything in it is based on real events." About the journey of an African sculpture, beginning in Cameroon in 1904. The film then traces what happens to the sculpture in Paris in 1907 and 1917, Berlin in 1933, and New York in 1948. The sculpture finally ends up in a museum in 1970.
