BOTERO is a poetic documentary of one of the world's most prolific living artists, Fernando Botero. Born in Medellin, Colombia in 1932, the worldly Botero had experienced a violent and tumultuous political landscape in his youth during the Colombian civil war which had a profound impact on his art and humanitarianism. This film is a behind-the-scenes chronicle of the life of the 86-year-old master artist.
“Through a series of interviews this documentary beautifully tells the story of an intensely private man whose paintings and sculptures blend his observations of everyday people, his reverence for the art of centuries past, his political leanings, and his sense of humor.”
“Despite my highly subjective take on Botero’s art, BOTERO, the film, is still an enjoyable experience that presents an appealing overview of the artist’s life and works and will no doubt please his many fans.”
