Gottfried Helnwein in 'Gottfried Helnwein and the Dreaming Child'

"Gottfried Helnwein and the Dreaming Child" is a feature documentary about the world famous Austrian artist, Gottfried Helnwein, and his contentious role as Production Designer for a never before seen opera in Tel Aviv, Israel in 2010. A violent production, "The Child Dreams" was written by Israel’s most famous playwright, the late Hanoch Levin, and portrays the hopes and dreams of children in search of freedom and peace. For Helnwein, the child has always been the symbol of innocence and innocence betrayed, a motif that persists throughout much of his work. But when the Israeli Opera’s creative team casts a woman to play the child, Helnwein must fight to preserve the opera’s integrity and Levin’s original vision.
