Summary Provides a rare and illuminating exploration of the creative process through incisive portraits of five seminal figures from a significant chapter in contemporary American folk art. Variously described as outsider, self-taught or visionary, the artists profiled in the film, all from the American South, produce remarkable works of art that are worlds away from the traditions of pottery, basketry, and quilting.
