One of America’s foremost artists, Eva Hesse (1936-1970) helped establish the post-minimalist movement with her pioneering sculptures using latex, fiberglass and plastics. Dying of a brain tumor at age 34, she had a mere decade-long career that, despite its brevity, is dense with complex, intriguing works that defy categorization. The film illuminates her life and work, from her birth in Hamburg to a German-Jewish family in 1936, to her associations with friend and mentor Sol LeWitt and fellow artists such as Richard Serra, Robert Mangold and Dan Graham. Her personal journals (read by Selma Blair) transport us to the downtown art scene of New York in the 1960s, where Hesse was one of the few women to triumph in a male-dominated field. Director: Marcie Begleiter. (US 2016) 108 min.
