Synopsis:

In Anselm, Wim Wenders creates 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, 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.

REQUEST FOR MORE DOCUMENTARIES

February 21, 2024
I WAS HAPPY TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE "ANSELM," AND I HOPE THAT THE CINEMA VILLAGE WILL CONTINUE TO SHOW MORE DOCUMENTARIES. FOR EXAMPLE, LAST NIGHT I HAD THE GREAT PRIVILEGE OF SEEING "20 DAYS IN MARIUOPOL" AT THE FILM FORUM FOR THE SECOND TIME, AND WHAT MADE IT EVEN MORE SPECIAL WAS THAT THERE WAS A Q & A WITH THE DIRECTOR & THE PRODUCER AFTER THE FILM. PERHAPS THE CINEMA VILLAGE CAN ARRANGE A SIMILAR SCREENING- IF NOT WITH THEM, THEN MAYBE THE DIRECTORS OF ONE OF THE OTHER OSCAR-NOMINATED DOCUMENTARIES- SUCH AS "THE ETERNAL MEMORY" OR "BOBBY WINE: THE PEOPLE'S PRESIDENT."

CONTEMPLATIVE STUDY OF AN ARTIST'S INNER THOUGHTS & PROCESS

February 18, 2024
I SUPPOSE THIS FILM WOULDN'T APPEAL TO PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS WANT FILMS TO HAVE A LINEAR PLOT OR WHO PREFER THE FLASHY DOCUMENTARIES THAT MICHAEL MOORE MAKES. HOWEVER, IT IS A VERY PLEASANT STUDY OF HOW AN ARTIST'S THOUGHTS ABOUT HIS LIFE- & OF GERMANY'S PAST- INFLUENCES HIS ART. AND THE PART ABOUT GERMANY'S PAST INFLUENCING HIS ART IS DEFINITELY RELEVANT- ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER RTHAT WE JUST SUFFERED THROUGH A PRESIDENT WHO ONCE SAID THAT THERE WERE "VERY FINE PEOPLE" AT A WHITE SUPREMACIST RALLY.
