1. Henry Moore: A Never-Ending Discovery (Moore in China)

Grand Award and Gold Award -The Questar Awards
Certificate of Creative Excellence -US International Film & Video Festival

"Highly Recommended. An insightful view of Henry Moore’s interest in universal themes and of the harmonious blend created when modern sculpture is placed in an ancient landscape. Moore enjoyed having his sculpture exhibited abroad because he was influenced by other cultures. This film completes the circle." -EMRO Review
"Recommended. A stunning documentary on the man whose sculptures have been placed in more public places throughout the world than any other sculptor in history." -Art World Review
Narrated by Janet Suzman, this rare and beautiful documentary explores the life and artistic vision of Henry Moore. The grandeur of his work, with its feel for natural forms and its essential humanity, is magnificently captured on film as viewers see in China one of the largest exhibitions of the great sculptor's works ever assembled. Featuring works that span the artist's 60-year career, the exhibition of 106 sculptures was hailed by leading art experts as the most important showing of Western art in China since the Revolution of 1949. As well as unique footage of Moore's life and work, the film includes contributions from Chinese scholars, contemporary artists Phillip King and Cornelia Parker, the Ashmolean Museum and the Morris Singer Foundry. Also, in Beijing's Beihai Park, the former Imperial Gardens adjacent to the Forbidden City, twelve monumental bronzes were sited around the lake among spectacular Ming Dynasty settings.
