To celebrate the artist's 75th birthday Peter Schamoni use state-of-the-art film techniques in telling authentically the stirring success story of an artist who grew up in straitened circumstances in a remote town in the Andes: "The Man from Medellin", who conquered the European art world and became celebrated star on the global art scene. His works have been exhibited in over 70 one-man shows in museums throughout the world, from Tokyo to Stockholm and Washington all the way to Caracas. His monumental sculptures have thrilled observers on every continent, for example at large-scale presentations on the Champs-Elysées in Paris 1992, on Park Avenue in New York in 1993 and 2007 in the center of Berlin. Over the past few years no artist has enjoyed such a wide-spread response.
