In the aim of this moving documentary we find the human and artistic history of Pino Pascali, one of the founders of Arte Povera, in what is the first complete film about the evolutionist artist, prophet, but also punk artist, saboteur and great juggler, whose creative fever and desecrating brio allowed him to create, between 1964 and 1968, a series of masterpieces for the history of international contemporary art.

Maurizio Sciarra, president of the Apulia Film Commission and member of the Istituto Luce – Italy’s largest public film company – won the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival in 2001 with “Off to the revolution by on a 2CV”, in addition to directing more films and documentaries throughout his career.
