The Unpainted Pictures is a biographical film project about the modern artist Emil Nolde.
Emil Nolde was one of the first expressionist painters famous for his unique style and exploration of color. In Nazi Germany, he was discriminated against because his art was considered impure by Nazi cultural standards and his current paintings were showcased in the Degenerate Art exhibition. He was also subsequently banned from painting, so he had to create his art in secret. However, in a twist of irony, Emil Nolde was also a staunch supporter of Hitler and Nazis, and he was a member of the Nazi party.
This short-film screenplay is a proof of concept for a biographical movie about Nolde and how fascism spares no one.
