Westermann: Memorial to the Idea of Man If He Was an Idea

Directed by Leslie Buchbinder

A veteran of World War II and the Korean War, mid-century sculptor and artist H.C. (Cliff) Westermann’s became an inspiration for many young artists. The film reveals ways in which Westermann protected his empathic spirit – and sanity – by ‘sculpting’ his body, artworks, friendships, his hand-hewn house, and his art-filled letters to his dearest friends and family.
