Hornsleth Product of Love is a definitive documentary feature on the controversial Danish-Scot countercultural artist, Kristian Von Hornsleth, whose fierce independence and disdain for postmodernism, and exploration of erotica make him a pariah to the art market.

Written, produced and directed by poet-filmmaker Ishmael Fiifi Annobil, Hornsleth: Product of Love takes a ‘forensic’ approach to the artist’s life and work; uncovering exquisite inner narratives, dissecting the rationale behind his rampant eroticism, his controversial responses to poverty and societal abuse, his influences, fears, ambitions, and his groundbreaking philosophical theory: Futilism.


Narrated by Harry Potter star Jon Campling, Hornsleth: Product of Love also features very potent interviews with Hornsleth, intoxicating analysis by renowned German art historian and critic Wolf Gunther Thiel, a pinpointed breakdown by American research sociologist Glenn Muschert, and a cascade of Hornsleth’s visceral imagery.

The outcome is a very powerful and beautiful reflection on a formidable artist.

Hornsleth: Product of Love is a powerful, stylish, and sobering documentary about the last avatar of counterculturalism.
