Harry Lieberman, at age 102, shares with wit and wisdom his art, philosophy, and love of life in this documentary which describes his transformation from retired businessman to artist who, in his old age, is "living on the top of the world." The film shows the connections between Lieberman's art and his life-"memories from 80, 90, 94 years back"-and tells his original stories as background to the paintings.
We see him painting, sculpting, and meeting with other senior citizens at the Golden Age Club in Great Neck, New York-where he started painting at the age of 80-and surrounded by young students when working as an "artist in residence" at the Fairfax High School in Los Angeles. This delightful film depicts the connections between Lieberman's life and his art, which celebrates Talmudic lore and Jewish life in long-ago Eastern Europe. To order this film and the entire Visions of Paradise collection on DVD, please contact the filmmakers.
