Abstract:

"What Farocki Taught, is literally and stubbornly a remake--that is, a perfect replica in color and in English, of Harun Farocki's black and white, 1969 German language film, Inextinguishable Fire. Taking as its subject the political and formal strategies of Farocki's film about the development of Napalm B by Dow Chemical during the Vietnam War, Godmilow's unabashedly perfect copy reopens Walter Benjamin's discussion of art in the age of mechanical reproduction."--Case.
