Inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed. In 1906, this visionary, trailblazing figure began creating a series of vibrant, sensual, large format paintings rooted in mysticism. The subject of a 2019 smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling documentary illustrates not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.
“Bristles with the excitement of discovery and also with the impatience that recognition has taken so long. It refreshes the eyes and the mind.” —A.O. Scott, New York Times “One of the best films I’ve seen about fine art. It casts an entrancing spell that allows the staggering depth of its subject’s work to consume us.” —Matt Fagerholm, rogerebert.com “...Goes far deeper than the surface—exploring not only more elusive elements of her personal story, but also the central role of af Klint’s abiding interests in modern science and transcendental spirituality in the urgency of her visionary ideas.... Excels at both contextualizing the artist’s intentions and circumstances as well as at analyzing the power and meaning of the work itself.” —Shana Nys Dambrot, LA Weekly
