Alvar: His Vision and His Art

Best Documentary -IGFF for Independent Film
"Highly Recommended. A variety of experts and collectors in the arts provide commentary on Alvar's works and themes, and Alvar himself comments on his inspirations. Together they form a concise overview of the artist’s endeavors. He seems to be completely in love with life, and that love translates into the beauty of his creations." -EMRO Review
"I love Alvar's iconography. He uses so many images and pictures to convey a message; similar to what was going on in medieval times and during the Renaissance and Baroque periods." -Dr. Leslie Hammond, Appleton Museum of Art, Ocala, FL
"Alvar, through his art, wants people to see beauty in the simple, every day objects of life, as well as in human relationships, and in the color of nature and earth." -Marjorie Agosin, Wellesley College
"I believe that Alvar's broad appeal as an artist arises in his unique ability to integrate the culture of the Mediterranean past with the culture of the Mediterranean present." -Montserrat Puertas, Dept. of Culture of Cataluña
This stirring and inspirational documentary celebrates the vision and art of one of Spain's major living artists, Alvar Suñol. One of the most collected artists in the world, with a loyal and growing following that now spans three generations he is best known around the world simply as "Alvar." Recognized for painting, lithography, sculpture and ceramic work, he was commissioned for monuments in Paris to honor Pablo Casals, and in his hometown of Montgat, honoring Mediterranean culture. Respected actor Monte Markham is the voice of Alvar, as this program weaves the artist's highly personal and immediately recognizable imagery throughout, telling his lifelong story. Shot on location in Spain and the United States, here we see and learn how his art evolved, and we are at once absorbed into Alvar's "universe" - an idyllic world of nostalgic fantasy, where villagers interact with one another in harmony, where lovers unite, where parents watch over their young, and all break bread together. Here we not only learn of the artist, but also of his message, to learn to listen to the music of life, to enjoy the arts and to celebrate the harvest of earth's bounty.
