Georg Baselitz is one of the greatest geniuses of his generation. For the first time, the reclusive artist has opened his studios in Germany and Italy to a film crew. Director Evelyn Schels accompanied him up close on trips to New York, Paris and Berlin, as well as being allowed into his private life. She was permitted to look at his family albums, talk to his wife and companions, and shows us the decisive events of his life in this enthralling biopic. Baselitz grants us a unique look at the heart of his art. The audience is right there during the most sensitive and critical phases of his creative process, in both painting and sculpture, following each brush stroke, witnessing his doubts and euphoria, discovering not only the artist, but also the person that is Georg Baselitz.
