This film about Matsumi Kanemitsu who is featured in the Museum's exhibition Drawing the Line was an Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary (Short Subject) for 1973. The film shows the collaboration between artist Matsumi Kanemitsu and Master Printer Serge Lozingot as they create a four-color lithograph. Beginning with the graining of the stones, the camera follows the process through the esthetic and technical challenges in drawing, printing, and proofing this complex image. Never before has the actual sense of making a color lithograph in a professional workshop been so vividly and effectively captured in this superb film. Running time: 28:15 min.
