North Star: Mark di Suvero DVD

Directed by Francois de Menil, written by art historian Barbara Rose, and with an original musical score by Philip Glass, this newly redigitized film first released in 1977 is an illuminating portrait of Mark di Suvero, one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century — renowned for his formal orchestration of steel and found industrial material.

Drawing from candid footage of di Suvero from the 1970s in New York and France, the film consists of biographical interviews and discussion with the artist about his relationship to the tumultuous political events in the United States, interlaced with shots of the installation of his sculptures. de Menil pieces together quiet and reflective segments of the artist at work — climbing, rigging, constructing, and drawing — with contemplative and intimate shots of the sculptor talking with his family and openly sharing his artistic philosophies and political beliefs.

The film also documents events in the spring of 1975, when di Suvero became the first living sculptor to install his work — including the monumental "North Star" — in the Tuileries, the public gardens in front of the Louvre. It concludes with the opening of di Suvero's retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1975.

DVD. 56 minutes.
