Beyond the Visible: Hilma Af Klint

Directed by Halina Dyrschka

Year: 2019
Running Time: 93 minutes
Country: Germany, Austria
Language: English, German

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

“CRITIC’S PICK. Bristles with the excitement of discovery and also with the impatience that recognition has taken so long.  It refreshes the eyes and the mind.”


“One of the best films I’ve seen about fine art. It casts an entrancing spell that allows the staggering depth of its subject’s work to consume us.”


“Gorgeous…goes far deeper than the surface…making an airtight case for af Klint’s ascension to an elevated place in art history.”


“An illuminating articulation of the era’s social and cultural complexities.  It’s more than worth a look — not only for its careful illumination of the artist’s biography, plus an abundant representation of her luminous paintings, but for the way in which it exposes the obstacles af Klint and her legacy faced”


"The film fascinates as an excavation of lost history as well as a study of the values and biases that shape the artistic canon.  Dyrschka’s delivers an engaging master class of art theory and history. Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint provides a unique opportunity to stroll the galleries as the artist gets her posthumous spotlight."


“Takes a deep dive into her oeuvre, while also revealing known details of the artist’s life.”


MOVIE OF THE WEEK.  “Dryschka’s fascinating documentary is an illuminating introduction to a major artist all but erased from modern art history.“

Kino Marquee is a new initiative that creates "virtual cinemas" for temporarily closed independent theaters. It lets audiences see at home newly released films that these theaters would otherwise be playing on the big screen, and which are not yet available on other digital platforms. 

Join us in supporting your community's theater in these uncertain times by buying a virtual “ticket” to watch award-winning international films, acclaimed documentaries, and restored classics on Kino Marquee. You’ll be directly supporting your local art house as all revenue is being shared between distributor and exhibitor just as if you bought your ticket at the theater's box office.

To get your ticket, click the Screen button above. You’ll have to register for an account if you don’t already have one. After you’ve entered your payment information, your rental period will start immediately and last for five days. You can watch the film as many times as you want in those five days.

You can watch on your computer, phone, or most tablets. You can also download the Kino Now app for Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Apple TV (tvOS 9.0 or later). See below for more detailed information about app-based viewing options. All viewing methods require high bandwidth internet connection.
