Synopsis:

Based on the writings of artist, Joan Miró, and returning to some of the places where he lived and worked, this cinematographic journey appraises Miró's crusial contribution to modern art, in particular during the 1920’s. The audacity to which he subject his paintings was a kick in the ass to the artistic conventions of the time, which, to use his own words, he wanted to “murder”. Celebrated but not always understood, Miró’s work inverted the relationship between form and background, and, using a language of symbols, he invented a new relationship within pictorial space.
