Dates and times

17 Dec 2020 - 31 Jan 2021

Online Event


partnering with two of our favourite independent UK distributors, Modern Films & Day for Night, for a series of new selections

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who was inspired by spiritualism, modern science and the riches of the natural world around her. In 1906 she began to create a series of huge, colourful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterisation and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.
