Directed by Jellie Decker; produced by Dick Lucas.

"The film depicts Bennink'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 a counterpoint to his cosmopolitan and often noisy musical life. Han Bennink lives in the moment, By the closing credits, we can understand why he might be called 'an Indian from the Netherlands'."
