Rating: 4.0/5.0

Artist Anselm Kiefer is a controversial and dynamic painter, sculptor and provocateur. Emerging from the modern art movement of the late 1960s, the documentary illuminates his work, life journey, inspirations, creative process and his own history of fascination with the myth of humanity. He is depicted in three parts of his life, child (Anton Wenders), Young adult artist (Daniel Kiefer) and contemporary self. His incredible evolution, fraught with controversy and ultimate acceptance, moves forward in his journey to create art in an old, massive silk factory in the South of France. This was his “Gesamkunstverk” … total art in location and form.

“Anselm” opens in Digital 3-D at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 North Southport Avenue in Chicago. All other screenings see local listings. Featuring Anselm Kiefer, Daniel Kiefer and Anton Wenders. Directed by Wim Wenders. Not rated.
