Documentary on Han Bennink, visual artist and percussionist.
The film depicts Benninks's Artistic development, from art student and 19 year old drummer in pick-up bands of touring American jazz soloists, to the uncompromising improviser he is today. His visual work, which he creates alone, silently and surrounded by nature, is shown as acounterpoint ot his cosmopolitan and often noisy musical life. By the closing credits we can understand why he might be called "an Indian from the Netherlands".
