This fascinating portrait of Yayoi Kusama, now the top-selling female artist in the world, traces her turbulent quest from humble beginnings, overcoming countless obstacles, to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. The visually entrancing film celebrates her life and art. Kusama was an underdog with everything stacked against her; as a child, her conservative mother tried to stop her from becoming an artist by tearing up her drawings. Later, she encountered sexist and racist barriers in the art establishment; she became famous for her polka dot hallucinogenic imagery, and was a sometime rival of Andy Warhol. She developed mental illness, retreating to live in the peace of an asylum for the last 30 years. In spite of it all, Kusama has endured and has created a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry and novels. People around the globe are experiencing her Infinity Mirrored Rooms installation in record numbers as Kusama, now 88, continues to create new work every day. (Partially subtitled)
