Description 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.

From the time of his birth, Dood was the king of the local German town. He could speak and read the language fluently, was the mayor and a big figure in the town, and enjoyed himself even in the most serious of situations. At some point in his childhood, Dood's mother gave him a book by the German poet Georg Werth, which contained a description of the different types of local dishes and the way they were prepared. This description took Dood away from his mother and his home town, and in the beginning of the 20th century he was the only boy in the town, living with his foster father, a rabbi who taught him to read and write, but who also took Dood to see the opera, taught him the ropes in carpentry and taught him how to speak the German language. Dood's best friend and confidant was his piano teacher, a man who also had a penchant for food. He was in the town at the same time as Dood, but at some point in time he was no longer there. Dood became a simple worker, but he and his friend were able to build the kitchen of the local synagogue in the town and took it apart and rebuilt it, but not before they were seen by the Rabbi and his wife, and it was decided that they would not continue their friendship, but if they continued living together they would have to be separated. After Dood was a teenager, he was too young to see his biological father. He did not want to be separated from him, but his father would not allow it. Dood's father was also a powerful figure in the town, as he was a Jewish businessman, who in addition to buying up land, was also building an industrial zone in the area. The industrial zone was a Jewish stronghold. His son was able to see his father, but was too young to have any good news from him. Dood decided that it was time for him to move out of the industrial zone and go to his mother, but the rabbi, his best friend and his piano teacher insisted that he stay. The only way to be separated from them was to leave the town and move to the Jewish settlement, where they would be safe from the Nazis. Dood's mother was too young to leave the town, but her husband, who had not been born there, was willing to help her find a way out. He worked for the authorities, but they would not allow him to leave the city and he was forced to stay there, to protect her. She could not leave her husband, but she was willing to leave her home. Dood was also too young to leave the industrial zone, but he decided to stay, because he wanted to meet his biological father. This documentary film was directed by Carl Enge, who is a great cinematographer, and also a great musician. His soundtrack is amazing, it captures the atmosphere of the time very well. It is a very moving film, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys movies that are more than just mindless entertainment.
