There is a new documentry out about the life of Alexander Calder. It has been produced and directed by the French film maker François Lévy-Kuentz. The film is entitled: "CALDER, SCULPTEUR DE L'AIR"

The film features interviews, archival film clips and footage of Calder's sculptures to highlight the innovative nature of his work and includes a lot of historical film material to visualise the cultural and social background of his era.

The film has been dubbed with English narration and the US premire of the film was held at the Whitney Museum on February 26th, 2009.

It appears that this film may contain some new footage and interviews that would be of interest to Calder fans. Hopefully the film will become available on DVD at some point as there are only a few video documentaries of Calder's work that are currently available.


  1. There is not one interview in this film... Which is a "gageure"... I wonder where you found that...

    1. I don't know what "gageure" means, sorry. I posted the only description of the film that I could find, I still have not seen it. So, you did not enjoy the film?
