What a year for one of our greatest and most varied directors, Wim Wenders, whose Oscar-nominated fiction feature Perfect Days is also showing at MFC. Anselm is a documentary–and equally stunning. In Anselm, Wenders creates a portrait of Anselm Kiefer, one of the most innovative and acclaimed painters and sculptors of our time, creating 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 more than 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 a career that spans more than five decades. “Extraordinary. Reminds viewers of the thrill of being in the presence of great art”–Deadline.
