Oliver Hirschbiegel — GermanySwitzerland — 2021 — 95'
German painter Albert Oehlen welcomes us to his studio to share his creative process. We see him struggling with the white canvas, muttering about balance, philosophizing about color. Finally, the work is finished: an abstract composition like many Oehlen has painted before. Except the man with the brushes is not Oehlen, but actor Ben Becker, who’s playing Oehlen, directed by the artist himself.
