A documentary about David Butler written, edited and produced by Rancy Boyd-Snee in 1985. Boyd-Snee discusses the similarities between African figural and black American sculpture; Butler's methods and materials; his imagery; and how his life changed as a result of media exposure. The video also includes comments by Nick Spitzer of the Louisiana Folklife Program, Butler's dealer Richard Gasperi, and William Fagaly, chief curator at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
