Anselm Kiefer ha raggiunto fama internazionale negli anni Ottanta diventando uno degli artisti più noti del panorama artistico contemporaneo. Lavorando su temi quali la storia, la memoria e il mito, realizza opere monumentali spesso controverse. In questo film, della serie Imagine - BBC, Alan Yentob segue l'artista nei suoi studi in Francia e in Germania mentre prepara una retrospettiva per la Royal Academy di Londra. Kiefer ci parla della forza interiore che lo guida e ci spiega come oggi lavori ancora con lo stesso entusiasmo e le stesse motivazioni di quando era all'inizio della sua carriera.

Having achieved fame and notoriety in equal measure in the 1980s, Anselm Kiefer has become one of the world's most singular and successful artists. Working with themes of history, memory and myth, Kiefer produces work that is consistently controversial and monumental in its scale and ambition. In this film for the BBC's Imagine series, Alan Yentob joins the artist at his studios in France and Germany as he prepares for a retrospective at the Royal Academy. Kiefer discusses the forces that drive him and explains why he is as excited and driven by his work now as he was at the start of his career.
