A probing portrait of Chris Burden, an artist who pushed the limits of creative expression and risked his life in the name of art. His pioneering and often dangerous performance works of the 1970s earned Burden a place in the art history books while still in his early 20s. Over the years, he had himself shot, electrocuted and crucified, but quit performance in the late 70s to artistically recreate himself. Now, having followed Burden creating new works in his studio and with access to his personal archive of images, video and audio recordings, this new documentary fully explores the life and work of this seminal artist.
