A documentary about German conceptual artist Joseph Beuys has wowed the audience at its world premiere in Berlin, depicting him as a creative wizard and provocative prankster who enjoyed challenging traditional thinking about art, politics and money. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Andres Veiel, "Beuys" shows the contradictory path of a man who voluntarily joined the Hitler Youth and fought in World War II, only to become one of Germany's most experimental artists and a vocal proponent of self-determination and grassroots democracy.During wartime, Beuys indeed survived a fighter jet crash in Crimean."Beuys" is the only documentary among the 18 films that compete for the Golden and Silver Bears at this year's Berlinale.
