Chronicles Rothko's life, charting the development of his work, which fills the screen with his softly defined, rectangular clouds of color stacked symmetrically on top of one another. Conceived to evoke elemental emotions and maximum poignancy. The focus is on Rothko's demands for the perfect setting for the showing of his work, an ideal he pursued throughout his creative life, typified by the story of his iconic Seagram murals, nine of which now hang in a dedicated room at London's newly-opened Tate Modern.
