Algis Kemezys spends winters in Crete, where he builds and photographs stone sculptures. This winter is a particular treat for him, as he meets and makes friends with Walter Lassally, one of the world's great cinematographers. On top of his game since the fifties, Walter has created the defining images of one hundred films, including A TASTE OF HONEY, TOM JONES, ELECTRA and ZORBA THE GREEK, for which he won an Oscar in 1964. He lives in Stavros, very near the beach where Zorba was filmed and he's still very much involved in cinema.
In the month of March, along with the spring flowers, Algis's old friend Scotty Gardiner comes from Montreal. He is a professor of Communication Studies at Concordia, the author of psychology textbooks, and the creator of Scott Siliclone. He is invited to Greece as a symposiast in the reborn Plato's Academy in Athens, and takes time out to visit Crete. Algis brings him to Stavros to meet Walter. An extensive dialogue ensues that reveals not only the trade secrets of each master's field of expertise, but also the personalities of two veterans and their particular ways of dealing with their golden years.
The film also follows Walter at the Maine Media Workshops where he gives a master class in cinematography.
