Cliff (working title) is a 3-D feature documentary film about the life and work of H.C. Westermann currently in production.
Sculptor and printmaker Horace Clifford Westermann (1922 - 1981) is an artist’s artist: widely revered by his colleagues in the art world for his meticulous craftsmanship and bleak humor, but little known to the general public. As a veteran of World War II and the Korean War who struggled with the ramifications of modern warfare, Westermann’s dramatic personal history can be traced through his beguiling, surreal artworks. Pentimenti Productions’ new feature documentary will use cutting-edge 3-D filmmaking techniques to bring the beauty, mystery, comedy, and pain of Westermann’s work and life to a new generation of viewers.
Production began in October of 2014 and completion is expected in late 2018. Archival research, script-writing, fundraising, and preliminary shooting are currently underway. Please check back in the future for updates!
