OVER YOUR CITIES GRASS WILL GROW

DIRECTOR: Sophie Fiennes - GREAT BRITAIN

German sculptor Anselm Kiefer’s manufactured landscapes and monumental installations are informed by one of the most provocative and rigorous minds in contemporary art. Fiennes’ striking film takes us into his singular world in exhilarating fashion, in the process creating a work as intriguing as its subject. Shot at Kiefer’s La Ribitte, his sprawling studio/estate in Barjac, France, which was once a silk factory, process and product find equal fascination. Here, Kiefer has worked on a series of elaborate installations and paintings—above and below ground—constructing and devising with earth, ash, gold, acid, glass, concrete, and lead; wielding blowtorches, brooms, and bulldozers as need be; and orchestrating a fleet of assistants—all with a magic creativity. “At once the place where his paintings and sculptures are housed and displayed, and a colossal, evolving architectural artwork in itself.”—Peter Bradshaw. (105 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Because I Sing (01), Hoover Street Revival (03), The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema (06).
