Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2019

The internationally famous artists Marina Abramović, Sigalit Landau, Katharina Sieverding and Shirin Neshat have been influenced and politicized by their personal experiences of war, violence and oppression in their respective countries of origin. These experiences infiltrate their works. Their means of expression is the most intimate medium they possess: their own bodies. Their art challenges us to develop new perspectives and awareness, deepening our understanding of the issues of our times.

BODY OF TRUTH accompanies these artists on an emotional journey through their biographies, chronicling the connections and parallels among them, exhibiting the awareness-raising power of art.
