Christoph Böll, Director: "I had the great honour of being the first to observe and document first hand Hänner Schlieker at work. This privileged situation allowed me to record the birth of three paintings from empty canvas to completed work. The genesis of one of these paintings I was able to completely capture in the film, 'Figur der Bewegung'. Hänner Schlieker's decision to let me record him at work and reveal the secrets of his studio will become an enduring part of his artistic legacy. I will never forget the intensity of the hours we spent together in complete concentration and focus on this documentation process."
