A film about the process of painting, the way a painter thinks and decides in a worldof observation and being observed.In this portrait, Gerda Lepke speaks for the first time about the story of her life, of the difficulties of becoming an accepted artist. We accompany her in her studio and her home in Gera and Dresden.A documentary about the "Kafkaesque" life enclosed in her studio space and her mother's small house and garden, with insight into the difficulties of a female painter who grew up in East Germany (GDR).\"A meeting and friendship that began in the mid 80s, led me into the "garden of the painter". This gave me the closeness and made it possible for me to realize a portrait of a painter in her own words, as she speaks to herself. I received, in each phase of the film's production, surprise new encounters with the work and life of the artist Gerda Lepke.
