- Arts, Portrait, and Biography
"The Cardboard Bernini" examines the life and work of artist James Grashow as he spends five years building a giant cardboard fountain, with the intention of putting it outside to dissolve. Inspired by the
baroque sculptor Bernini, and propelled by a crucial event documented in the film, Grashow is driven to experience the process of creation and loss by making an extraordinary artwork that will be
destroyed in the end. This film follows Jimmyâ€™s journey, as he questions lifeâ€™s fragility and the artistic process.
