Twenty-two years in the making, the film follows Tony Conrad’s strange and uncompromising fifty-year artistic path through experimental film, music, video, public television and education and his unlikely resurgence as a noteworthy composer and performer. Conrad’s numerous works, interwoven with intimate footage reveal a remarkable, inspiring and creative life.
