About the film
The Colour of your Socks: A Year with Pipilotti Rist accompanies the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist around the world, shows her at work in her studio in Zurich as well as at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Since she won the Duemila prize at the Biennale Di Venezia in 1997 Rist has continued to exhibit around the world in ever larger exhibitions.

For the first time Rist let a documentary film maker into her world, providing insight into her creative process, the development of projects and the collaboration with her team.

Hegglin immerses his viewers in Rist’s world of colour and images. His sharply observant camera captures the mood and fascination which she evokes with her art.
-Peter Drõssler.

Please note that this film contains brief moments of nudity.
