Event Details

A member of the New German Cinema, the films of Alexander Kluge constitute some of the most innovative and film-form forwarding cinema one can ever witness. A definite influence on Werner Herzog and Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Kluge's films represent a key link to understanding much of what influenced art film in the 1970's in Germany and internationally. Sadly not as known now as he should be, Kluge's films are only now being put out by Facets and several of them are still difficult to obtain. This film, an excellent introduction to Kluge's work, is an exciting mix of documentary, political agit-prop, humor, and arthouse cinema that should entice any fan of the movies.


We will have free food and drink prior to the film. Then we will screen Karl Starkweather's short film "The Power Couple" and after promptly start the main feature.

A clip from the film can be viewed here:
