Over your Cities Grass will Grow

Over Your Cities Grass will Grow (2010) is a documentary by Sophie Fiennes about Anselm Kiefer and his construction of a Gesamtkunstwerk near Barjac in France. Kiefer has built a house, a huge studio and is constructing a work of art and sculpture that can be walked through. The film documents the structure itself, the creation of art by Kiefer and features an interview with Kiefer. If you like Kiefer you will be fascinated by the film. The film is beautifully shot, the only thing that grated was the music which detracted from contemplation of Kiefer’s creation. Watching Kiefer work on his huge paintings and sculptures is engrossing.
