HIGH MAINTENANCE - THE LIFE AND WORK OF DANI KARAVAN

POLISH TITLE: DANI KARAVAN. BEZ TARYFY ULGOWEJ

This film, full of a wry wit, is a warm and touching portrayal of Dani Karavan, a world-famous Israeli sculptor who is best known for his impressive monuments in public spaces. Despite his advanced age, he is bursting with energy and makes brusque comments about various aspects of reality ranging from the negligence of contractors of his works to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The director presents this larger-than-life personality with great sensitivity, yet does not shy away from difficult topics, such as discussions about the project for the Polin Museum that eventually was not carried out.
