“Engrossing. A clear picture of the artist as a joyfully disruptive presence.”
“Every so often, you’ll see a portrait-of-the-artist documentary that’s so beautifully made … that when it’s over you can’t believe the film hadn’t existed until now. It feels, in its way, essential. NAM JUNE PAIK: MOON IS THE OLDEST TV is like that.”
The life and work of pioneering video and performance artist Nam June Paik is explored through interviews with those who knew him best and lots of amazing archival footage.
