Summary:This documentary examines the life and career of Isamu Noguchi, a prolific Japanese-American sculptor, best known for his naturalistic designs of open space. Discusses earlier works, including the famous Noguchi "heads" within the context of his apprenticeship under Constantin Brancusi. Ceramics, furniture, interiors, and gardens designed by Noguchi reflect his Japanese ethnic roots and his fondness for Japanese artistic tradition.
