"Inexpressibly moving….James Morrison’s work was full of awe for the natural world, and this documentary does his landscape painting full justice." - Andrew Pulver, The Guardian

Follows James Morrison, widely recognized as one of Britain’s finest landscape artists, as he faces his greatest ever challenge. His work hangs in the homes of celebrities and the Royal family, as well as in museums, and private collections around the world. But now his eyesight is fading fast, and he has one more major painting to complete. As Morrison reflects on his remarkable artistic journey, from Glasgow shipyards to France to the vanishing arctic wilderness, the film becomes a powerful and poignant exploration of what it means to be a landscape painter. Eye of the Storm is the universal story of a creative mind dealing with the physical frailties that catch up with all of us.
