'We lack witness to time', says Jørgen Haugen Sørensen, one of the most noteworthy Danish sculptors. Free of the restrictions of styles, rules, or schools, he gives unstintingly of his experience and impressions of life, of everything he perceives, thinks, and sees. Film director Malene Ravn has spent the last ten years recording the birth of Jørgen Haugen Sørensen's work from the moment at which he returned to clay and the figurative art he started with as a young man. Sørensen tells stories in his clay sculptures, and the film depicts with intense intimacy the artist at work, from a tiny feeling, a thought, an idea, to the finished work. Jørgen Haugen Sørensen's enormous energy sweeps the film.
