A triumphant follow up to his 2011 tour-de-force Pina, Wim Wenders’ latest 3D documentary is another magical and holistic profile of an iconic artist, Anselm Kiefer—one of the most innovative sculptors and painters of our time. Wenders traces Kiefer’s path from his native Germany to his current home in France, connecting his life and controversial work over five decades in a mesmerizing visual experience.

Kiefer tackles a variety of topics such as the human experience, mortality, and the cyclical nature of history, all of which are reflected beautifully in this stunning documentary. He provides both a stunning window into a career that has spanned five decades, as well as a fascinating deep dive into the creative process of one of the world’s foremost contemporary artists.
