In the 1990’s, as a digital video experimentation, Lana Jokel decided to film the acclaimed artists of the Hamptons in their homes and studios on the East End. In a series of impromptu interviews, she talked to many visual visionaries about their work and creative process. The discussions were intimate and spontaneous as the artists reflected, revealed and mused about whatever else came to mind. Edited together in this remarkable montage are the participating artists: John Alexander, April Gornik, Sven Lukin, Nathan Joseph, Li-Lan, Eric Fischl, Elizabeth Strong Cuevas, Donald Sultan, Audrey Flack, Howard Kanovitz, John Chamberlain, and Robert Dash.

Lana Jokel is known for her documentaries on famous artists, such as Robert Motherwell, Lee Krasner, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, and Larry Rivers, as well as for two films she produced and directed on Chinese Contemporary Art in 2004. She began her career working for documentarians Richard Leacock and D A Pennebaker. She subsequently edited Norman Mailer’s films, Beyond the Law and Maidstone, as well as two feature-length films produced by Andy Warhol and directed by Paul Morrissey, Heat and L’Amour. In 2013 Jokel was selected by her peers to receive the Filmmaker’s Choice Award from the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival.
