In this film, we are introduced to the painter James Morrison, who is widely recognized as one of Britain’s foremost landscape artists, and who now faces his greatest ever challenge: age and illness. His works are displayed in the homes of J.K. Rowling and the British royal family, as well as in museums and private collections the world over. But his sight is rapidly deteriorating. A powerful and poignant exploration of what it means to be a landscape painter, Eye of the Storm is also a universal story about a creative life, and one that addresses the physical fragility we are all subject to.
