The unconventional love story of Ushio and Noriko Shinohara starts in ’70s New York. 40 years of chaotic marriage later, the two Japanese artists are still struggling with their creative demons, despite their numerous failures and disappointments. Shedding light on a life devoted to art, Zachary Heinzerling’s documentary is the touching chronicle of a turbulent relationship and a paean to love, sacrifice and the never-ending quest for personal expression. Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival and a nomination for Best Documentary at the Academy Awards.
