How do artists figure in the act of social protest? This documentary charts the history of outrage by examining the works of masters such as Daumier, Dix, Goya, Picasso, Rembrandt, and others--and revealing how three contemporary artists and a master printer see the images of the past as impacting on the sensibilities of those trying to arouse public action through the creation of etchings, woodcuts, and lithographs. 82 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
