‘The film offers a unique insight into the world of Giger‘s creation and his private life. In addition to the interview with the artist himself, a considerable part of the documentary is formed by interviews with personalities such as Ernst Fuchs, Stanislav Grof and Debbie Harry. Though the authors do not avoid particular developmental periods of Giger‘s work, the main purpose was not to create the artist’s biography. In this case, it is more likely considered to be an authentic perspective on the peculiar world of this Swiss surrealist artist’

‘It is the first time you will be able to see Giger‘s paintings processed digitally in high resolution quality, 3D animated and together with original film music and surround sound. Watch ten moving image collages, where we used over 200 diapositives which cover the most important periods of his work. Each of those collages will be presented in an abstract story, which will tell us more about Giger‘s life and artistic work’
