Martin Blaszko was born in Berlin, in 1920, but he moved to Buenos Aires in 1939 and lives here ever since. A writer, painter, and draftsman, he developed both abstract and concrete art styles, and his pieces have been shown in many museums and exhibitions worldwide. One of those exhibitions in Buenos Aires is precisely the origin of Martin Blaszko III, the film. And a series of precise and concrete fixed shots set the basis for showing how the exhibition is set up (the preparations, the people involved, the discussions), but also for unveiling both the personality and relationships the artist establishes with his environment and the place where he works. A culmination of the trilogy initiated by the short films Martin Blaszko I and Martin Blaszko II (which are also screened in this edition of Bafici), this third piece closes up the portrait of an artist who chose Buenos Aires as his source of inspiration, and it does so in a way that’s as elegant and touching as the very same art pieces it features.
