Gerhard Richter on Film

In 2009 Corinna Belz, a German actor, writer and documentary filmmaker, spent time filming in the studios of the legendary painter Gerhard Richter. The result of which is ‘Gerhard Richter Painting’, a rare insight into the workings of this documentary revealing the thoughts and processes of this famously reclusive artist, widely considered one of the most important living painters. Richter’s work now spans 5 decades, which also includes stained glass, highly regarded photographic and theoretical offerings.

The Film will be shown at many cinemas in Berlin between 21-26 October 2011, including Babylon Mitte, Kino International, Rollberg and more, see here for details.
