"Eine Frau kehrt nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg mit schweren Gesichtsverletzungen aus dem KZ nach Berlin zurück und sucht nach einer kosmetischen Operation ihren Ehemann. Der erkennt sie aber nicht und überredet die vermeintliche Fremde, in die Rolle seiner Frau zu schlüpfen, um an deren Erbe zu gelangen. Dichte Literaturverfilmung, die sich dem Umgang mit dem Holocaust im Nachkriegsdeutschland mit den Mitteln der (Kino-)Mythen nähert. Eine beklemmende Raumpoetik, eine Bildsprache im Sinne des Film noir sowie großartige Darsteller machen den Film zu intensivem Gefühls- und Spannungskino über Schuld und Verdrängung." []

Probably the most prominent living filmmaker, and one of the foremost directors of the postwar era, Jean Luc-Godard has received astonishingly little critical attention in the United States. With Speaking about Godard, leading film theorist Kaja Silverman and filmmaker Harun Farocki have made one of the most significant contributions to film studies in recent memory: a lively set of conversations about Godard and his major films, from Contempt to Passion . Combining the insights of a feminist film theorist with those of an avant-garde filmmaker, these eight dialogues-each representing a diffe

In December 1989, a popular rebellion in Romania overthrew the government and executed dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu and his wife Elena. After word of demonstrations in the city of Timișoara reached Bucharest-via the VOA and Radio Free Europe, demonstrators in Bucharest determined that television and video would play an important part in the success of the developing revolution, and occupied the studios of Televisiunea Romănâ, broadcasting continuously for 120 hours. Using footage taken by amateur videographers, network camera operators, and the broadcasts demonstrators aired as the revolution unfolded, the filmmakers present a chronology of those events as captured, aired, and seen by the participants themselves

Harun Farocki is one of Germany's most respected filmmakers, artists and writers. Farocki's essay films question the production and perception of images, decoding the medium of film and examining how audiovisual culture relates to politics, technology and war. This first major UK retrospective of his films includes screenings of Videograms of a Revolution, Farocki's iconic collaboration with Andrei Ujica concerning the 1989 Romanian revolution, and and five British premieres, including the award winning Respite, which revisits footage of Westerbork, the Dutch transit camp, filmed in May 1944, and A Day In the Life of A Consumer, an epic portrait of consumer society constructed entirely from advertisements. The season will also include presentations by Georges Didi-Huberman on 13 November and The Otolith Group on 27 November. Curated by Stuart Comer, Antje Ehmann and The Otolith Group. With support from Goethe-Institut London, in collaboration with Art Monthly. Presented in conjunction with Against What?

"According to Harun Farocki, today's photographers working in advertising are, in a way, continuing the tradition of 17th century Flemish painters in that they depict objects from everyday life -- the "still life". The filmmaker illustrates this intriguing hypothesis with three documentary sequences which show the photographers at work creating a contemporary "still life": a cheese-board, beer glasses and an expensive watch"--VDB website

A discursive, essayistic examination of photography and other visual technologies which are used as a substitute for the real, and a means of control. Most of these technologies, especially aerial reconnaissance, were designed for military applications, and provide an archival record of human potentialities, of the possibility of total domination which the Nazis explored in the laboratory of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp

Shot in four days (July 19-22, 1983) at Playboy's photography studio in Munich, the film begins with the building of the set and follows through to the dismantling of the set at the end of the job. Farocki includes all phases of the photo shoot and shows the participation of the many people involved in making one photo. Though the Playboy photographer instructs the model to "give us your usual saucy look", Farocki strips the glamour and allure from the subject by focusing on the labor and orchestration behind it

Die Bewerbung = The interview by Jeanne Faust( Visual )

5 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary about German training classes for job interviewing. The director notes, "In the summer of 1996, we filmed application training courses in which one learns how to apply for a job. School-leavers, university graduates, people who have been retrained, the long-term unemployed, recovered drug addicts, and mid-level managers--all of them are supposed to learn how to market and sell themselves, a skill to which the term 'self-management' is applied. The self is perhaps nothing more than a metaphysical hook from which to hang a social identity."

Die Schulung by Harun Farocki( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Indoctrination Farocki recorded a five-day seminar designed to teach management executives how to better present themselves using basic rules of dialectics and rhetoric. Throughout the seminar, a group of young professionals learn verbal skills so they can 'sell themselves' better; then they are trained in body language, posture, and facial expression. Using no titles, talking heads, narration, or other conventions of documentary, Farocki manages to expose how big business uses psychology and principles of rhetoric to sell ideas and products. The result is a window into the secret world of corporate behavior, marketing manipulation, and ultimately modern capitalism"--Container
