Introduction by Hilda Inderwildi (University of Jean-Jaurès)
Thoughts are born while we speak, according to Kleist. Seated in front of his paintings in Croissy-Beaubourg, the painter Anselm Kiefer comments on his work and inspirations. The person interviewing him off the record is the writer, essayist and film director Alexander Kluge. The film introduces us to the inti- macy of a conversation which is not only profound, but also surprising and entertaining. From tunnels to starry processions, the film contains tremen- dous gravitational tempests as well as visible and invisible images.
With the support of the Goethe-Institut de Toulouse, Leben in Midi-Pyrénées, the German Section of the Université Jean-Jaurès, AFAEA (Association franco-allemande d'Expression artistique) and the Cinéma Le Cratère, as part of La Quinzaine Quinzaine franco-allemande en Occitanie.
