About the Film

Eva Hesse

Directed by Marcie Begleiter
108 minutes
Not Rated

Eva Hesse (1936–1970) is one of America’s foremost postwar artists whose sculptures helped establish the post-minimalist movement. Dying of a brain tumor at age thirty-four, she had a mere decadelong career that, despite its brevity, was rich and complex. This is the first feature-length documentary of her life and work, and draws on Hesse’s journals and her correspondence with Sol LeWitt, as well as archival interviews with fellow artists.
