Edith Jud ‧ CH ‧ 2003 ‧ 118 Min ‧ E/d Dieter Roth painted, drew, printed, wrote, made films and played music. He created his own universe, where everything, no matter how banal or transitory, became art. Conceived as an inward and outward journey, the film explores the link between art and life. Roth’s works are the starting point, including videos and films in which the artist himself appears. Interviews with Roth’s son Björn, who worked with him for the last 20 years of his life, as well as with friends and companions complete a fascinating cinematic portrait of a great artist. CinemArt is a film series presented by Hauser & Wirth in collaboration with Ciné Theatre Gstaad.
