    Introduction by Kai Kaljo.

    A pioneer of video art, Bill Viola never ceases to push the boundarie of realty and the limits of our perceptions. Life, death, transcendence, time space - these are questions that he has chosen to broach through a medium which is always reinventing itself. This film enables us to understand the spiritual journey, the artistic quest and the technological experimentation of one who has been described as a "sculptor of time". He was interviewed by Jean-Paul Fargier in his Los Angeles studio, along with his partner and collaborator Kira Perov. Their words are interwoven with enlightened analyses from seven grat Viola experts: Raymond Bellour, Nadeije Dagen, Anne-Marie Duguet, Alain Fleisher, Jean de Loisy, Valentina Valentini, as well as Jérôme Neutres, co-curator of the Bill Viola survey exhibition at the Grand Palais. Together they offer us the keys to Viola's unique and visionary world.
