The genius, artist, philosopher, scientist, dumpster-diver, Joe Davis started making crystal radios as a child, nurturing a lifelong fascination with electro-magnetics, DNA and the nature of the universe. Art and science fuse in his work; whether creating a genetically modified apple designed to tempt the Devil, recording the sounds of micro-organisms or encoding Greek philosophy into fly DNA. After Joe explains the broadcast of the harmonic frequencies of vaginal contractions into space as a comment on the censorship of gender by the space program, the universe no longer appears the same.
Exploring Davis's fascinating life via home movies, reminiscences from family and friends, and the always-stimulating presence of Joe (the kind of man who makes dumpster-diving an exploration of possibilities), an absorbing portrait of a true polymath emerges. Director Sasowsky captures Joe's wonder for the universe and succeeds in making the audience feel the same sense of awe, excitement and raw possibility. Joe is one-of-a-kind.
