w/intro by Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow Erik Born (Society for the Humanities) 1966 > Germany > Directed by Alexander Kluge
with Alexandra Kluge, Günther Mack
Alexander Kluge’s first film casts his sister as a young East German crossing the Berlin Wall in search of career opportunities, drifting from job to job on the fringes of her new home. Hailed as a breakthrough, Kluge adapts the style and concerns of the French New Wave for a powerful and poetic critique of West German life. Sponsored by the Dept of German Studies.
