About the film:

Premiere at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.

A portrait of Anselm Kiefer, one of the most innovative and important painters and sculptors of our time. Shot in 3D and 6K-resolution, the film presents a cinematic experience of the artist’s work which explores human existence and the cyclical nature of history, inspired by literature, poetry, philosophy, science, mythology, and religion. For over two years, dir. Wilm Wenders traced Kiefer’s path from his native Germany to his current home in France, connecting the stages of his life to the essential places of his career that spans more than five decades.

“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
