The film explores Joan Miró's life and working practice, beginning at his first studio at his family's farm in Montroig. Guided by Miró's grandson and the curators from Tate Modern, the film visits his complex of studios and workshops near Palma, Mallorca, where he moved after the Second World War and then worked prolifically until his death at the age of 93. It includes rare material from films by Pere Portabella and Català Roca of Miró at work, and testimonials from friends who remember him as a remarkably generous and humble man.
The film was made to accompany the exhibition 'Joan Miró, The Ladder of Escape' at Tate Modern. 14 April - 11 September. Directed, filmed and edited by MPH.
