Eva Hesse, a documentary that explores the journey of an extraordinary woman; an artist whose life was in dynamic interplay with the development of her ground-breaking work. The story takes place in the excitement of 1960's NY; the downtown art scene with the creative community, in their studios and on the streets plays a major role as does the burgeoning feminist movement. The film also explores her youth as a Jew in 1930's Germany, a country she returned to in 1964 to face her past and forge her future. A poignant look at a profoundly talented artist whose career, as it was beginning, ended in both tragedy and triumph. I selected this film because Eva Hesse had a profound effect on my life as an artist. She was a role model to me and countless other women because she broke down so many doors for all of us.
