    A rare glimpse into the life and thought-provoking public projections of the Polish-born artist Krzysztof Wodiczko. His lifelong investigation of monuments, war, and trauma is intimately explored through his urban art interventions created over the past fifty years. Wodiczko invites war veterans, refugees, and the homeless to co-create with him on his projects so they can speak about their plights in public spaces. The evolution of Wodiczko’s political art unfolds throughout the film, from his first intervention created in Warsaw, Poland (his birthplace) in 1968, through his latest effort to transform Paris’ monument to war Arc De Triomphe into its complete anthesis -a temporary site for war abolitionism and peace activism.
