Robert Wilson, Absolute Wilson



One of the most influential stage and opera directors of the last 30 years, Robert Wilson's blend of music, time, repetition, visual imagery, and psychological insights have given this hard-working Texan a formidable international reputation. But Absolute Wilson has Wilson center stage, not behind the camera, for an in-depth film biography that conveys the roots of his mysterious art and the connections he has made between his life as a stuttering small town gay kid with a conservative father to a true arts pioneer. At 65 Wilson speaks of his reputation, the cult that developed around him, his 1984 Olympics debacle, and why he's never cottoned to commonly perceived notions of autism.
