The transformative powers of the ocean underscore this documentary tracing the life of famed Dutch/Californian artist Bas Jan Ader, who vanished at sea in 1975 while attempting to sail the smallest boat on record across the Atlantic Ocean. As fellow immigrant filmmaker Rene Daalder explores the mysterious events surrounding Ader's disappearance, the viewer is treated to a sweeping overview of the entire contemporary art scene. Additional interviews with artists Rodney Graham, Ger van Elk, Fiona Tan, Tacita Dean, Charles Ray, Pipilotti Rist, and others reveal why Ader's work remains as powerful and influential as ever over thirty years since he vanished from the face of the Earth. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
