BECAUSE I WAS A PAINTER screening on October 10th 2014

Our German-French co-production is a poetic documentary about the necessity of art. In dealing with art works made by inmates of the concentration camps, which were painted secretly and under great danger.  Director Christophe Cognet manages to create an intense sight about  life and death in the camps.

The documentary allows the artists, to show some of these works and have a chance to show why art can be just as vital as eating or drinking
