"It's not a way of making a living, it's a way of making a life."

This film examines the life and philosophy of an acclaimed artist who, for the last 40 years, has chosen not to sell his work.

Paulus Berensohn was born to Jewish émigré parents in Brooklyn NY and, despite family opposition, became a dancer who studied with greats Merce Cunningham and Martha Graham and appeared in major Broadway productions.

Then Paulus found clay, and has spent the past forty-five years discovering his relationship with this living substance. Along the way he has taught countless workshops at Penland School of Crafts and numerous other places both nationally and internationally.

In the film he discusses his life, philosophy, views on the art world and his fairy godchildren, his love of movement and ongoing practice of Qigong and the Alexander Technique, and death and dying.

British reviewer Keith Howes wrote: "See this film, breathe it in, use it as a journal, a way of moving forward. Paulus believes that "Everybody is an artist", whether that art is embodied in decorating an envelope or creating a miracle on a potter's wheel. This elegant, endlessly insightful film is a call to touch, to feel to enrich our world from a universal palette."
