From film, art and opera to theatre and television, the talents of the late Christoph Schlingensief knew no creative bounds, as this resonant documentary on the radical provocateur attests.

With punk fervour, Schlingensief tackled German history, conservative politics, religion and family in his maximalist works and went on to posthumously win the Gold Lion at the 2011 Venice Biennale. The urgency and daring ambition of Schlingensief’s idiosyncratic productions is evocatively rendered in this expertly edited film, with troves of unseen footage. Fans will delight in the rare interviews, while the uninitiated will be inspired by the artist’s articulate vision — either way, viewers will leave ravenous to see more from Schlingensief’s oeuvre.
