Description
Summary:Kemmel is almost 40. Although little throws the good-natured sculptor off, he is torn... between wanting to address his generation's memories of the Holocaust, and disappointment that many people don't understand his works-despite official programs to bring art to the public. One day, he offers to make a sculpture for the sports field in his hometown. The Wolf/Kohlhaase team based this tongue-in-cheek, episodic film on the life of Werner Stötzer, one of East Germany's most important sculptors. They interweave personal memories, political defeats and the weight of German history into a nuanced story about the role of art and artists in society. References to other artists-including sculptor Will Lammert, painter Albert Ebert, photographer Einar Schleef and Soviet writer Anatoli Kusnetzov-add contextual layering to cultural debates taking place in early-1970s East Germany.
