In 1970, filmmaker Luchino Visconti travelled throughout Europe looking for a boy who could personify absolute beauty for his film adaptation of Thomas Mann’s DEATH IN VENICE. In Stockholm, he discovered Björn Andrésen, a shy 15-year-old teenager whom he brought to international fame. This documentary returns to Anderson, 50 years later.
