Synopsis

In October 1996, the Infinite Column was dismantled. After four years of technical surveys, restoration works were initiated in the fall of 2000 and they were finalized in the early winter of the same year. The film captures this process, probably unique, within the larger context of Constantin Brâncuși’s life and personality.
