    Centering around the open-air concert in Los Angeles, as well as footage from Berlin, New York and Paris, we are plunged deep into the artist’s life and process, transcending the work to explore his legacy. This groundbreaking visual portrait echoes the contemplative essence of Richter’s work, offering a meditative respite from the rush and chaos of the modern world. A study of the universal experience of sleep, that unites us all.
