Journeys from Berlin 1971 ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prompted by experience as an expatriate American artist in (West) Berlin, Journeys from Berlin is a curiously prescient, relevant film on the nature and psychology of violence, isolation, trauma, and repression. The sounds of an urban couple's the off-screen conversations are juxtaposed against a scrolling text describing the political climate of 1960s Cold War era (West) Germany, as the government scrambled to contain the threat posed by a domestic terrorist group, the Baader-Meinhof gang (Red Army Faction). The film is a multi-layered reflection of seeming irresolvable, contradictory synchronicity - of dichotomous collisions between image and sound, words and sentiment, time and memory, ideology and action
