ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES
Anselm, Wim Wenders
This exceptional cinematic experience invites audiences to delve deep into the work of Anselm Kiefer.
It reveals the painter’s background, inspiration and creative process, exploring his fascination with myth and history. Past and present intermingle to blur the boundary between film and painting.
Shot in 3D over a period of more than two years, Wim Wenders’ film paints a unique portrait of one of the world’s greatest contemporary artists, immersing us in the world of Anselm Kiefer.
FROM THE PRESS KIT
Wim Wenders : “
Anselm Kiefer and I were born at the end of the Second World War.
“We were both born at the end of the Second World War, he a few months before, I a few months after. We spent our childhoods in the same ruined country, with a destroyed self-image, populated by adults – including parents and teachers – who frantically wanted to create a future for themselves and who were just as frantically trying to forget the past or pretend it hadn’t happened.
While Anselm was studying law in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, I was studying medicine. We could have met then, but we both branched off: he went to art school, I went to film school. But as nothing is more formative than first impressions, we had a lot to share and a lot in common. Obviously, we then channeled our childhood experiences in very different ways. …”
“This language of 3D (for it is no more and no less than a language in its own right) is capable of revealing and making us see more than we perceive in a two-dimensional image.
3D offers the most astonishing physical and mental immersion. And this language is capable of poetry – at least in my opinion, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.
The language of Anselm’s film owes absolutely nothing to anything I’ve done before.
We discovered this exclusively through our confrontation with the work of Anselm Kiefer.
And this “we” is not a “we” of majesty: it includes my director of photography Franz Lustig, my stereographer Sebastian Cramer, my editor Maxine Goedicke and myself. “We were flabbergasted by the experience, which brought us so close to the work of an artist.
We absorbed so much more, and that’s what the film wants to share: a very complete and rich “close encounter”.
Much of the film was made by intuition, and many scenes were shot very spontaneously – I realize this: I’ve always wanted to shoot my “documentaries” as if they were fictions. And on the other way, in my fiction films, I’ve always preserved the documentary aspect of each shoot, whatever may be in front of the camera.
AN ART IN THE OUTSIDE
Many trips to India, Asia, America and North Africa led to his interest in the exchange of thought between the Eastern and Western worlds.
Structures resembling ancient Mesopotamian architecture appear in his work, as does Jewish mysticism, which plays an important role.
In addition to his paintings, sculptures, books and photographs, Anselm Kiefer has also worked on various sites.
After transforming a former brickworks at Höpfingen in the Odenwald, he created installations and sculptures that became an integral part of the site.
A few years after settling in Barjac, in the south of France, he transformed the land surrounding a former silk mill into a network of paths, tunnels and crypts linking numerous art installations.
The site is now part of the Fondation Eschaton- Anselm Kiefer, which is open to the public.
The opening of the foundation in 2022 coincided with Kiefer’s return to Venice, where a cycle of paintings inspired by the writings of Italian philosopher Andrea Emo was installed in the Doge’s Palace and exhibited alongside the Biennale.
My personal impressions
The impression of being immersed in the mind and heart of a man in the throes of creation.
Anselm Kiefer is an artist who struggles to bring Germany’s past into the present, even as the country tries to forget it.
And his creative process plunges us directly into this past, which he recreates in order to denounce it.
His giant paintings are made from all kinds of materials, including sculptures, architecture, buildings and photographs.
Anselm Kiefer is a total artist who has confronted the greatest tragedy of the 20th century, Shoah, and his work plays an essential role in the history of Shoah which has been decided in Germany.
At a time when anti-Semitic acts are increasing around the world, his film unfortunately has a particular echo.
NOW IN THEATERS
Bosch: legacy, season 2, Tom Bernardo, Michael Connelly & Eric Overmyer
After being kidnapped by a masked assailant, Maddie Bosch’s police career hangs in the balance.
While the search continues, the FBI, which is interested in the murder of Carl Rogers, suspects Bosch and Chandler.
So, yes or no?
No big changes, still the same old tricks, but the series works: a Harry Bosch who’s bent on authority, strong female characters and investigations focused on domestic violence and a rise in cybercrime.
The best part of this series: the jazz! For die-hard fans.
Now on Prime Video.

ARTE ‘ FILMS & SERIES AS OF OCT 25TH
Two women in love
Two straight couples sympathize with each other, until one day a tender inclination develops between the two women… An important figure in new German cinema, director Rainer Kaufmann cultivates two passions: adapting literary works and playing women who find themselves in inextricable sentimental situations, as in this TV movie.
Cléo from 5 to 7
A young woman wanders the streets of Paris, haunted by death… Between gravity and lightness, a subtly feminist film emblematic of the Nouvelle Vague, set to music by Michel Legrand and signed by Agnès Varda.
Lions Love (and lies…)
In May 1968, Agnès Varda was in Los Angeles with Jacques Demy, who had come to film “Model Shop”. The filmmaker decided to film the effervescence taking hold of California: the birth of the counter-culture, the rejection of the Vietnam War, “flower power”, the hippie movement… With, in their own roles, Viva, Shirley Clarke, Eddie Constantine.
Through a rigorous analysis of over 175 film extracts, Nina Menkes shows that a systemic sexism guides the representation of women in cinema. Is the seventh art “the common language of rape culture”?
Freedom, equality, sisterhood
In preparation for a conference, a group of feminists selected by an association meet for the first time. Ideological divisions, explosive debates and unforeseen affinities will make for a lively weekend. A humorous reflection on activism and intersectionality.
Total Control, from October 19
Seeking to exploit the popularity of an indigenous activist, Australia’s Prime Minister unleashes a war of power in which no holds are barred. In the vein of “Borgen”, a thrilling series that delves into the inner workings of democracy.
In the Australian town of Winton, Alexandra Irving, an aboriginal activist, succeeds in stopping a maniac who was shooting women in the street, and finds herself in the spotlight. Rachel Anderson, the Prime Minister, entrusts Jonathan Cosgrove, her advisor, with the mission of convincing this heroine to run for a seat in the Senate. Meanwhile, Jess Clarke, an Aboriginal teenager, escapes from a detention center after witnessing the death of her cellmate. Faced with Alexandra’s refusal, Rachel, challenged within her own party, decides to meet the young woman…
The Enfield Mystery: from 27/10
Based on Britain’s most famous haunted house case of the 1970s, a brilliantly acted miniseries in which fantasy transcends the melancholy of realityThe events at Enfield, which held the British press spellbound for three years before being recounted in detail in a book by Guy Playfair, inspired the efficient James Wan to release a classic horror film last June (Conjuring 2 – The Enfield Mystery).
This miniseries by Kristoffer Nyholm (who also directed a season of The Killing), on the other hand, subtly plays on social and psychological realism, depicting the relationship between wounded people with melancholy touches.
Polar Park: from 10/25
In France’s coldest village, a writer in crisis finds himself on the trail of a serial killer with a devious imagination, alongside a gendarme who’s a little too Cartesian… A delicious blend of thriller and comedy, a series in the form of a snowy treasure hunt.
With Polar Park, director Gérald Hustache-Mathieu brings back to life the endearing heroes of his film Poupoupidou (2011), a mismatched duo of investigators played by Jean-Paul Rouve and Guillaume Gouix.
