Alfredo Jaar is one of the most relevant contemporary artists. His works issue different issues all over the world such as the USA-Mexico border, the genocide in Rwanda or the military coup in Chile. He sees art as “the last place” of freedom in our society and displays his work as an act of resistance. This is the first movie made about him and also a journey through his work, exhibited all over the world. The soundtrack is by his son, the renowned electronica musician Nicolas Jaar.
