Through the Eyes of the Sculptor [electronic resource]

A sculpture comes alive in clay, dies in plaster, and is reborn in marble. This intense process has rarely been documented. The program takes viewers inside the Malibu studios of master sculptor Emmanuel Fillion as he creates a new piece-from a figurative clay model to a life-size marble sculpture. Educated as a restoration artist, Fillion worked on many important historical monuments in France including Notre Dame cathedral and the Louvre. In a program highlight, he visits a master carver restoring sculptures on the Pont Neuf, a 17th-century Parisian bridge. Comparing present-day carving and quarrying methods with those used centuries ago, scenes in the marble mountains of Pietrasanta and Carrara, Italy, evoke rich traditions dating back to Michelangelo's time.
