Scr/dir: Corinna Belz.

Artist Gerhard Richter offers viewers rare insight into his artistic process in this intimate new documentary. Considered one of the world’s greatest living painters, the eighty-year-old Richter is seen working on a number of large-scale canvases in his Cologne studio. Born in 1932 in Dresden (which was to become East Germany), Richter left for the West in his twenties and went on to create an influential and far-ranging body of work that includes abstract paintings and photorealist portraits.
