Sepp Dreissinger and Heike Schäfer accompanied the exceptional Austrian artist Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) on a regular basis with their camera for a period of nearly thirteen years. This led to a powerful portrait disclosing a complex personality. Lassnig’s oeuvre has already been inscribed in cultural memory — the film makes sure that the subject behind it is also not forgotten.
