TV documentary portrait. A MAN WITH A RAVEN tells a story of Jože Tisnikar, in whom a daily routine of an autopsy assistant intertwines with sensibility and genious of a painter.
»It seems to me that I have seen a lot of things which in reality I never have. That I have travelled the countries where I have never been, and that I have lived my own and other lives. If I had not been born before, some knowledge and experience of the dead must have passed into me.« Jože Tisnikar
