"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

Die Schlafwandler Hörspiel by Hermann Broch( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermann Brochs Trilogie "Die Schlafwandler" zeigt an den drei Figuren Pasenow, Esch und Huguenau, einem preußischen Offizier, einem rheinischen Kleinbürger und einem elsässischen Geschäftsmann, den Wandel der Gesellschaft in der Wilhelminischen Ära. Dem Hörer stockt der Atem angesichts der frappierenden Parallelen zu unseren Tagen: Wirtschaftskrise, Werteverfall, Kulturwandel, Brochs Werk klingt fast wie ein Kommentar zu den aktuellen Entwicklungen. Mit einer herausragenden, stimmgewaltigen Besetzung und pointiert gesetzter Musik wird in der Inszenierung von Klaus Buhlert die Dramatik jener Umbruchjahre so lebendig, als erlebten wir sie heute

"In 2000, Mohammed Fazazi was the Imam (or faith leader) at the Al Quds mosque in Hamburg, Germany, and near the end of the holy observance of Ramadan, Fazazi led several teaching sessions for his congregation in which attendees would be allowed to ask questions about the Qur'an and Islamic principles that they would normally be required to present in writing. Two of the sessions were videotaped, and in them Fazazi speaks (among other things) about his attitudes about Europe and America, and Islamic positions towards nations that embrace other faiths and support policies that run counter to Muslim law. Fazazi's statements proved to be wildly controversial after the fact when it became known that a number of the attendees at his 2000 presentations later participated in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington D.C., including three of the four suicide pilots. Filmmaker Romuald Karmakar transcribed Fazazi's statements from the surviving videotapes, and in the film Hamburger Lektionen (or Hamburg Lectures), actor Manfred Zapatka delivers Fazazi's speeches in full"--Www.fandango.com

A dramatization of the life of Torquato Tasso born in 1544, the court poet at Ferrara. The play is at root a quarrel between classicism and the new spirit of romanticism. Goethe's Tasso considers himself a lonely genius, talks a lot of the importance of nature, and clearly believes in the primacy of individual emotion. To everyone else, his friends included, he is self-absorbed and self-indulgent
