PAUL KLEE: THE SILENCE OF THE ANGEL is a visual journey into the work of a major painter of the 20th century by Michael Gaumnitz, an award-winning documentarian of artists and sculptors. Like Kandinsky and Delaunay, Klee revolutionized the traditional concepts of composition and color. By listening to the heartbeat of nature, exploring the science of his time, and studying music and poetry, Klee created his own artistic language, which questioned the nature of form, line, and color. He moved beyond figural abstraction to capture the very essence of movement in his painting. Using the writings of Paul Klee, as well as the events of his life and career, Gaumnitz presents the pictorial universe of a visionary artist.

The latter half of the disc is a slideshow exhibition of 150 drawings, paintings, and mixed media by Paul Klee. Fortunately, it allows you to the view the works at your own pace. I can only recommend this documentary to the viewer who hasn't read (or doesn't intend to read) any books about Klee.
