Born of an American mother and a Japanese father, sculptor Isamu Noguchi transcended two worlds to become an artist of international renown, "at once the purest of sculptors and one of the most socially oriented, exulting in large public projects" (Hilton Kramer, New York Times). This unique video probes the psyche of a creative genius, exploring the effects of an unusual childhood and the artist's reconciliation with his heritage. Apprenticed to Brancusi, Noguchi embraced the arts of furniture design, calligraphic brush drawings, set design, and took the humble Japanese lantern and developed it into his trademark Akari lamp. 52 mins.
