High Maintenance

High Maintenance

Israeli artist Dani Karavan, winner of the Israel Prize for Sculpture, has produced almost 100 environmental installations in countries around the world, championing peace over politics. His acclaimed work, however, is starting to deteriorate, and Karavan is determined to visit as many of his structures as he can, while being a thorn in the side of whoever will listen. Meanwhile, he must decide whether to complete a controversial commission for the Polish government commemorating those who rescued Jews during WWII. Karavan turns to scholars and friends to weigh in, including a charming rendezvous with filmmaker Wim Wenders.  

This warm, witty and touching portrayal, completed before Karavan’s death in 2021, serves as an inspiring reminder of the artist’s legacy and impact.
