GER 2019, 93 Min.

The first abstract artist was a woman: misjudged and concealed Hilma af Klint rocks the art world now with her mind-blowing oeuvre. She was a visionary and a pioneer. In 1906 she painted her first abstract painting. This course-correcting film is not only about her art and craft in life but also about the role of women in art history and the discovery of an art scandal. A cinematic approach to an artist whose seeks for meaning in life and finds it. Hilma af Klint’s boundless thinking opened her mind to biology, astronomy, theosophy and even quantum mechanics that led into an outstanding oeuvre. The cosmos of her paintings is crossing borders to communicate with our innermost feelings today.
