Discovery in a Painting

Synopsis

Hurwitz and Kirchheimer cast their Kino Eye on Cézanne’s Still Life with Apples, one of the foundational works of modernism. The result—to which Kirchheimer added a score after Hurwitz’s death—is a mesmerizing exploration of surface detail, color, abstraction, and geometry.
