While legendary pantomime Marcel Marceau entertained audiences on stages around the world, much of his tragic history and influence remains hidden off stage. In the first feature documentary about Marceau's life, director Maurizius Staerkle Drux portrays the performer behind the painted mask as a deeply complex, sensitive and compassionate man whose art was rooted in experiences of WWII atrocities and his time in the French Resistance smuggling Jewish children across the border to safety. Expertly weaving testimony from family, friends and former protégées with exquisite cinematography and poetry, The Art of Silence is a must-see for fans of mime and Marceau.
