Israeli artist Dani Karavan has created nearly 100 environmental installations all across the world. He has won some of the most prestigious international art awards and is constantly asked to speak or lecture about his groundbreaking work. Yet Karavan is far from satisfied. His monumental structures are rapidly deteriorating. His advanced age is starting to catch up with him. In addition, Karavan becomes embroiled in a serious political and artistic conflict over his latest commission, a monument to Polish nationals who had risked their lives saving Jews during World War Two. High Maintenance is a cinematic reflection of its namesake, a straightforward, yet intricate film, emotional and personal without being melodramatic, and as painful as it is humorous and passionate about one of the greatest artists of our time.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Barak Heymann and Chana Budgazad Sheldon, executive director of the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA). To view the conversation please click here.
