“I wanted to explore human creativity and how it can be that some people take traumatic events of their lives and turn it into beautiful art,” said writer-director Henckel von Donnersmarck (THE LIVES OF OTHERS) of this portrait of an artist inspired by painter Gerhard Richter. Spanning three eras of German history, NEVER LOOK AWAY tells the story of young art student Kurt (Tom Schilling), who falls in love with fellow student Ellie (Paula Beer). Ellie's father, Professor Seeband (Sebastian Koch), a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter's choice of boyfriend and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago. Befitting its artistic theme, Caleb Deschanel’s cinematography and Max Richter’s score provide a rich burnish to the film.
