A documentary produced by the Israeli Film Service.
“I believe that an artist must be reborn all the time,” states Marcel Janco, one of the founding fathers of the artistic movement Dada. Janco, 82 years old at the time of filming, speaks in this documentary about his transfigurations and reincarnations as an artist: from the first scribbles in his school notebooks in Romania, through the founding of Dada in Zurich, to the establishment of the Ein Hod Artists’ Village in Israel.
