Summary "A quirky documentary about a colourful artist, set to tango music. This feature-length documentary explores the unusual life and work of Tom Kreisler (1938-2002), a major New Zealand artist who is still little known. Kreisler was a Jewish immigrant from Argentina who was sent to New Zealand at the age of 13. He developed a humorous, subversive approach to painting that was completely unlike the mainstream of New Zealand art, though today it is coming into its own. His low profile as an artist was not only because of his maverick style but also because he lived not in Auckland or Wellington but in New Plymouth."--Publisher description.
