EN - Ninety-year-old sound artist and comedian Henry ‘Sandy’ Jacobs lives a quirky existence at the end of Sunnyside Drive, a steep and winding dirt road washed by fog from the Pacific Ocean. Sixty feet down the hill lives his eccentric 84-year-old friend and neighbour, architect and former Frank Lloyd Wright collaborator Daniel Liebermann. These extraordinary old men, influential artists in the 1950s and ’60s, continue, each in their own way, to search the world for perfection. Sunnyside takes us to an extraordinary place, a microcosm with its own distinctive rhythm and remarkable inhabitants. It is a film about creativity, the capacity to dream and, ultimately, the transience of life.

NL - De 90-jarige geluidskunstenaar en komiek Henry ‘Sandy’ Jacobs en z’n excentrieke 84-jarige vriend en buurman, architect Daniel Liebermann, leiden een eigenzinnig bestaan op een heuvel in Noord-Californië. De wijze ‘gek’ Sandy leeft in het hier en nu terwijl de filosofische Liebermann overspoeld wordt door onvoltooide projecten en onvervulde dromen. Deze non-conformisten zoeken, elk op hun eigen manier, nog steeds naar perfectie in de wereld.
