Hilma af Klint’s groundbreaking abstract paintings are the first of their kind, but they were not recognized as a legitimate entry into the art canon for decades. The first film about her life and art asks the question of how such a groundbreaking artist could be ignored. What follows is an art scandal, years of miswritten history, and a story of the erasure of female artists. This doc sets the story straight on af Klint’s vital role in art history.
