SCREENING, 7:00pm
Jean-Marie Straub und Daniele Huillet bei der Arbeit an einem Film nach Franz Kafkas Romanfragment "Amerika" 1983, 26 min.16 mm

This film takes as its subject the process of creating a film—in this case a film by Farocki's former professor at the film academy, Jean-Marie Straub. Together with Danielle Huillet, Straub breaks with cinematographic language in a systematic way. The film is an homage to Straub that turns into a self-portrait of Farocki.
