A film about a very special moment in the artistic life of the famous film music composer.

Michael Nyman (‘The Draughtsman’s Contract’, ‘Gattaca’, ‘The Piano’) is about to become a filmmaker himself. At first it was documenting places and people, but right now it is turning into an art process. Featuring unprecedented access to the composer and his working life, this film shows one of the great composers of our time in all his diversity and endless energy. Witnessing the development of his visual works from the very moment of inspiration right through to his editing of the footage and the combination of the visuals with his music, this film gives a unique insight into Nyman’s very personal views, his thoughts and emotions; his world.
