Painter, writer, lover, playwright, traveler, and free-thinker, Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980) is a rare being, lucid and passionate about his long life. Through the exceptional portrait of this endearing man, witness and actor of his century, this documentary, strewn with fragments of fictions, makes us discover the fate of an extraordinary man. Kokoschka's intimate life mixes with his artistic and social life as a committed citizen. To his life without respite is added his relentless activity as a painter-thinker whose every canvas is a manifesto in favor of freedom and hope, a message of painful beauty and fraternity, a celebration of life. Portrait of a valiant man and the time he went through.
