A fascinating documentary about Piet Zwart (1885-1977), an idiosyncratic and stubborn designer, who lived for innovation and prepared the way for the international success that is now known as Dutch Design. Piet Zwart worked as an interior and industrial designer, commercial typographer, photographer, critic and lecturer, playing a key role in defining the design climate in the Netherlands in the Twentieth Century.
Producer/director Sherman De Jesus has directed films such as A Shtetl in the Caribbean and Everything Must Change – Piet Zwart. His films on artists Jan Schoonhoven, Jan Henderikse and Henk Peeters, have screened at international museums such as the Guggenheim Museum New York and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
