This documentary film by Juan Barrero from 2016 explores the life and work of one of the most eminent sculptors of the 20th century, Eduardo Chillida. At the age of 19, Chillida was a gifted athlete set to become a football legend. However, a severe injury during a match prevented him from becoming a professional. Decades later he would become one of the most prominent sculptors of our time. His sculptures are now part of world renowned and celebrated collections across the world. CinemArt is a film series presented by Hauser & Wirth in collaboration with Arthouse Zürich.
