Saint Clair Cemin, Psyche

Saint Clair Cemin, Psyche

Amid this extraordinary and arduous adventure which lasted almost five years, this feature documentary is at once an intimate portrait of the Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin as well as the precise reflection on the sculptor’s creation of the marble boat Psyche, from the embryonic stages of development in his studio in Brooklyn, NY, to its installation in a Sculpture Garden in Cleveland, Ohio. This film was shot in Brooklyn, NY, Beijing, Zurich and in the Amazonian region, Brazil (2015-2019).
