Documentary on Rotterdam artist Co Westerik, who died in September 2018. In this film, Jan Wouter van Reijen explicitly rejects the traditional form of the artist portrait. Instead he searches for a different, creative way of illuminating the motivations, themes and emotions underlying Westerik’s paintings.
