    • Xico Stockinger migrates to Brazil after World War I. He dreams of becoming an airplane pilot, but his Austrian origin prevents him from graduating when Brazil enters World War II. He started as Bruno Giorgi’s apprentice when he embraces a new dream: art.
      Xico’s unfailing creative capacity along his life echoed among his coeval and still does so in society. Xico Stockinger shows his story, mingled with historical events, his techniques and works. A documentary film on the importance of perseverance and the need of self fulfillment.
