Description: A chronicle, which goes behind the scenes on a stormy collaboration between the iconoclastic dance company, Pilobolus, and legendary author-illustrator Maurice Sendak. Over months of improv work in the studio, they transform a haunting holocaust legacy into a disturbing theater piece. The documentary weaves verite rehearsal, interviews, rare holocaust footage, and performances into a revelation of the creative process. Shot on wide screen digibeta, Sendak with his Night Kitchen Theater partner, Arthur Yorinks -- and Pilobolus artistic directors Robby Barnett, Michael Tracy, and Jonathan Wolken -- shows us the tenacity and wit that drive the creative process when serious artists work together.
