A Remarkable Work by Don Seiler
This film is a glimpse into the life of this unique individual during the creation of a 10 ton concrete commission in honor of Mark Spitz for the International Hall of Fame in Ft Lauderdale, Florida in the early 1970s.
Don Seiler grew up spearing large, strong fish in the cuts and reefs around South Florida and the Keys with the world famous Art Pinder and other pioneers of diving before World War II with masks they made themselves.
He speared fish professionally at depths of 115 ft without even a snorkel. He never used an oxygen tank in his life and once held the world free dive record at 247 feet.
A profoundly gifted sculptor, he developed a unique style under the tutelage of Ossip Zadkine and Isamu Noguchi in New York immediately after the war.
Don produced some of the finest artwork made in this country in the last half of the 20th century. He somehow escaped mainstream notice and worked in relative obscurity in Florida and the Bahamas until his death in 2000.
