“The personality of the sculptor Chaim Gross, his mannerisms, his characteristic method of work, his tendencies are all intimately disclosed in minute details, as though unobserved—a sort of candid-camera study. Dramatic form and cinematic structure endow the presentation with excitement, humor, and interest.” —Lewis Jacobs
“Although it was filmed in 1937, Tree Trunk to Head wasn’t released until 1951. In the intervening years, art documentaries became popular in the United States and Europe, but few presented a complete artistic process with so photogenic an artist as sculptor Chaim Gross.” —Cecile Starr
