The Great Evolution

Documentary | 2015

Written, directed, produced by Matthias Luthardt / French Exit 2015

The film documents the encounter with the conceptional artist and philosopher Fritz Schranz, who since the 1960s has created an autonomous world in an old vicarage in Upper Bavaria, which has become a dazzling meeting place for many soul searchers and truth-seekers. Among them the actress Hanna Schygulla, topmodel Veruschka and her mother Gottliebe Lehndorff, a Hitler assasin´s widow. The film portraits the 85-year-old as a thinker and – of course – in action.
