Der Angriff der Gegenwart auf die übrige Zeit & Vermischte Nachrichten

Der Angriff der Gegenwart auf die übrige Zeit & Vermischte Nachrichten

Edition Filmmuseum 27

The last films for cinema by Alexander Kluge. Both tell about a dozen stories which complement one another by creating a context. The Blind Director: A young doctor feels that she is redundant. People hurry around. A family sits in front of the computer as if it were a fire in the hearth. A kindergarten teacher is supposed to turn a child over to its legal guardians. The blind director. The present becomes inflammed. Without prior events, the future and particularly a sense of the possible, there is no reality. Miscellaneous News are on the last page of the newspapers. With little oversight from editorial offices but with great emotional fuel. The 2-disc DVD also offers a talk with Alexander Kluge and Jean-Luc Godard as well as new one-minute films by Alexander Kluge.
