For this documentary, filmmaker Erik van Empel has filmed his brother Ruud for over two years. At the time Ruud van Empel was working on series such as “World” and “Generation.” Old 8mm footage shows his early days in the family and provides a backdrop for the way his career took off, starting from hand-drawn comic-books while still a youngster, to Production Design, and finally to making Art. The documentary demonstrates Ruud van Empel’s complicated computer techniques and shows the reaction of people who were confronted with his work at an opening night in a New York gallery.
