Reinhoud, My Sculptor

a film by Blaise D'Haese
an touching portrait on Cobra-sculptor Reinhoud D'Haese made by his son Blaise

Blaise D'haese, the director of this film, lost his father, the sculptor Reinhoud in 2007. He filmed his father during the last two years of his life.
Blaise feels a void in his life. Reinhoud, although he was a very public man and member of the Cobra movement, never spoke about his painful past family life, nor about the ambiguous relationship he had with his native country Belgium, which he left at the age of 30. When Blaise was born, his father was already old. Blaise searches through all the interviews and numerous archive photos and videos to get to know his father better and understand his work.
