“My mother and I decided to participate in the making of this documentary to pay homage to my father and to highlight his work," explains Yvon Chu, the artist’s son and Vice-President of Fondation CHU Teh-Chun. "The aim of our foundation is to promote the work and history of this remarkable and multi-talented Franco-Chinese artist, and this is the first time that a film encompasses both his personal and artistic career."
