Acclaimed filmmaker Wim Wenders returns to the screen with an epic study of German painter and sculptor Anselm Kiefer. Wenders offers a riveting and visually stunning insight into a career which has spanned five decades, exploring Kiefer’s use of mythology and literature, the preoccupation with his country’s troubled past, as well as his working practices and processes.
A s with Wim Wenders portrait of Pina Bausch in 2011, Anselm is presented in 3D, befitting Kiefer’s monumental creations and the vast spaces in which he works. One sequence shows the artist cycling around his atelier in France, examining pieces which are jaw - dropping in scale.
The film also weaves in re-enactments from earlier in the artist’s life, played by his own son Daniel Kiefer, as well as the director’s grand - nephew, Anton Wenders. A fascinating and immersive retrospective of a major career
'This is a superbly controlled and expressed film and its high seriousness about the nature and purpose of art really is invigorating' - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
