Summary, etc.:
Born in 1932 in Dresden, Gerhard Richter is considered one of the world's greatest living painters and now nearly 80 years old, agreed to talk about his work, as a small film crew documents his creative process. Blunt, provocative, unashamedly curmudgeonly, and iconoclastic (but never cynical), the artist says he's 'interested in things he doesn't understand,' that 'painting is a secretive business,' and that 'each painting is an assertion that tolerates no company.
