A meditative portrait by Austin-based filmmaker Travis Lee Ratcliff (previously featured here). Turning his attention to Irish sculptor and educator Dony Mac Manus — an artist who rejects the ugliness of contemporary art and returns, instead, to the ideals of the renaissance —  Ratcliff states:

“Dony’s work and thinking seem to raise a set of questions about our experience of time and our sense of place in it. How do we navigate the past, tradition, and form our identity in the present in response to these forces? These were the ideas I wanted to explore in this film.”
