The invention of abstract art is usually credited to Wassily Kandinsky in 1911, yet by that time, Swedish painter Hilma af Klint had already been producing astounding abstract works for five years. Why has she remained obscure? A must-see for fine-arts fans, this documentary introduces the life and work of an unjustly unsung luminary, chronicling the first major exhibition of her work at the Guggenheim in 2018, and exploring the place of women in art history.
