18h00 Welcome drink
19h00 Happy Lamento (Alexander Kluge, 2018, 90’)
After more than 20 years, Alexander Kluge returns to the big screen. His cheerful lamentation connects the informal urban settlements of Manila with Elvis Presley and King Kong. When Heiner Müller muses on the moon, Helge Schneider on the orchestration of space and Peter Berling on the military benefits of lions, one is most likely in a film by Alexander Kluge. He connects in his (music) film, associatively as well as playful, the G20 summit with the circus, electric elephants and blue moons. The film was created in cooperation with the Filipino film director Khavn de La Cruz, excerpts from his film ‘Alipato: The Very Brief Life of an Ember’ (2016) provide the sound of the essay.
Born in Halberstadt (1932), Alexander Kluge is one of Germany's leading intellectual voices today. His huge body of work can be regarded as a continuation, in words and moving images, of the Frankfurt School's Critical Theory. The motives, themes, and formal strategies of Kluge’s radical cinéma impur raise questions on representation and gender, history and memory, theory in its relation to practice, and the ongoing vitality of modernism.
