War and Peace & The Candiate

CHF 26.00 / EUR 23.00

War and Peace: At the peak of the Cold War, the short-range missile crisis, neutron bombs could have potentially annihilated Central Europe. 300,000 protesters in Bonn. German Chancellor Schmidt resigns. Why make a film collage about war? «Nothing is more discouraging than not being able to see through a game on which your life hinges.» – The Candidate: Another film collage motivated by the election campaign for the German Bundestag in 1981, where Franz Josef Strauss sought the office of the chancellor. An institution in politics falters time and again because of the reality of the Federal Republic. «Getting to a place in the sun is not easy because once you are there, it has already set.» The 2-disc DVD also offers two short films by Alexander Kluge, texts by Alexander Kluge and Oskar Negt and the unpublished screenplay «Eyes from a different country» which was never filmed.
