Outsider Art, an artistic form characterized by spontaneity and a departure from cultural norms, evokes invention and emotion. In Japan, the vast majority of outsider artists have an intellectual disability. This sensitive and poetic documentary features artists who possess surprising lucidity and unique perspectives. Director Ise Tomaya gently and lovingly explores their artwork and the passion that drives them. A fascinating journey to the heart of human potential.
