Directed by Wim Wenders | Germany | 2023 | 1h 33m

Filmed over a two-year period, celebrated filmmaker Wim Wenders’ (Paris Texas, Wings of Desire, Pina) presents a portrait of Anselm Kiefer, one of the most innovative and important painters and sculptors of our time. Shot using 3D and 6K cameras, this incredibly immersive documentary explores Kiefer’s work as well as his fascination with mythology, the human condition, and the cyclical nature of history.

‘Anselm is ultimately an extension of Kiefer’s “protest against forgetting,” as it reminds us that art is an act of remembrance.’
Greg Nussen, Slant Magazine

‘This is a superbly controlled and expressed film and its high seriousness about the nature and purpose of art really is invigorating.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
