Film title:
The Silence of the Angel: Paul Klee
language: English / subtitle: Chinese

The Silence of the Angel is a sacred journey into the universe of an architect of colours, one of the great painters of the twentieth century.

The works of Paul Klee (1879 – 1940) are vast and include 9 000 pieces on the fringe of all known artistic movements of his time.
Like Kandinsky and Delaunay, Klee revolutionizes the traditional concept of composition and the use of colour.

Klee questions forms, lines and colours. He listens to nature, to the sciences of his time, to music and poetry, creating a language made of signs. Klee goes beyond the opposition between abstraction and figuration. His painting is founded on movement, rhythm, as well as on oppositions and tensions, and becomes a polyphonic work.

2006: Award for the best educational film at the 24th International Art Film Festival (FIFA) – Montréal, Canada.

Peter Liew, one of the most established Malaysian artist and is very much known for his brilliance in mastering the techniques of oil painting.
