Chickens can fly

Description:

“If you wait for inspiration before you get up in the morning you would possibly spend a lot more time in bed. In life there is not much difference between 27 and 67, the big thing is to make every second count. Not the second before or the second thereafter, it’s this very second that counts – the living second.”
Pieter van der Westhuizen

Pieter discovered at a very young age that “the world he found himself in was not a comfortable one”. At around the age of four he decided that this life was not for him so he began creating another world for himself – in pictures.

This documentary follows the life path of Pieter van der Westhuizen. It displays his great talent and his extraordinary adaption to a life that was not without challenges – his fascination with Israel, his failed marriages and the influence that his life tragedies had on creating the world that he chose to escape to through his art.
