Feature Documentary

Ninety-year-old sound artist Henry “Sandy” Jacobs, who lives a wayward existence on a mountain in Northern California, introduces us to his eccentric 84-year-old friend and neighbor, architect Daniel Liebermann. The wise fool Sandy lives in the here and now, while Liebermann is haunted by memories, unfinished projects and unrequited dreams. These non-conformists, each in their own way, still search the world for perfection.

Sunnyside  is a co-production of Clin d’oeil films.
