In 1891 Gauguin left Marseille for the Pacific, marking the beginning of a journey towards the essence of life and art, and forging his destiny as one of the greatest modern painters who ever lived. The documentary takes us on the trail of a story that has become myth. Through Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia, we will experience the landscapes that inspired Gauguin, the places where he built houses with bamboo and leaves, and discovered light and colours which changed his painting forever. Audiences join this journey from Tahiti to the prestigious American museums where Gauguin’s greatest masterpieces are preserved, including New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, and The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
