Abstract:

"Produced in response to the kidnapping and murder of a prominent industrialist by a German terrorist group 30 years ago ... consists of a series of nonfiction and fiction segments bookended by two funerals--the industrialist's at the beginning and the terrorists' at the end. More of an essay than a straightforward documentary, the film captures impressions of this explosive and emotive moment in Germany's history by several directors of the New German Cinema"--Container.

"Eleven leading filmmakers collaborated on this protest against Fascist tendencies in West Germany by reflecting on the tragic events of autumn 1977, when public official Hanns Martin Schleyer was kidnapped and murdered by the Baader-Meinhof group, whose members mysteriously died in prison. The contents of this quasi-documentary, omnibus film range from an elegiac sequence of the burial of the prisoners to newsreel clips of Rommel's cortege and a fictitious argument among TV executives about a controversial production of Antigone. In the amazing Fassbinder sequence, he interviews his mother, who had endorsed the dictatorship, then physically abuses his boyfriend. Political history and film history intersect in this dynamic film that deftly combines art and politics."--Distributor website.
