Synopsis:

This film portrays the life of Belgian ceramist, Max Van der Linden (1922-1999). We discover his unique approach to art through photographs, through the personal anecdotes of people who knew him well, and through his work. Max lived a rich life among village people, met many people from diverse origins and many well-known painters, sculptors, musicians… These experiences permeate his ceramics. His works depict man’s struggles, solitude and friendships. … They present us with an amazing mix of tradition and modernism - although they embody the clamour and clatter of our lives, they also bring peace and harmony.
