Mica Pillemer is an accomplished international artist who, for reasons best known to himself, wanted to paint John Silvester for the Archibald Prize.
During the sitting he reflects on his family history – from the concentration camps of Europe, the oppression of South African Apartheid to the New York Twin Towers attack. And the sliding door moment that brought him to find love and settle in Melbourne.
Contains a sample of Melbourne Football Club theme song "It’s a Grand Old Flag" 1976 performed and written by the Fable Singers.
