    • Synopsis
    • She paints mutilated, naked, sexless and faceless bodies. And she paints faces radiating happiness, people in paradise, people who fly.

      Originally from Bulgaria, Oda Jaune studies at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, becomes a master scholar of the painter Jörg Immendorff and later, his wife. After Immendorff’s death in 2007, she moves to Paris. She agrees to make this film and the idea is for the director and her cinematographer to join her in the studio and capture her creative process for an upcoming exhibition.

      During their collaboration the protagonist repeatedly refuses to comply. A complicated encounter, in which the filmmaker deploys cautious maneuvers to reveal Oda Jaune's fragile act of painting, without damaging it in the process.
