Une jeunesse allemande

Jean-Gabriel Périot France, 2015

interkosmos's rating of the film A German Youth

A fairly concise archival exploration of the Red Army Faction phenomena. The take on RAF history is the one currently en vogue, but what really shines here is the archival footage, especially that of Ulrike Meinhof and the films of Holger Meins and Gudrun Ensslin. If there is something new here, it is how that footage emphasizes the RAF's origins and dialectic in media studies and praxis. MUBI show some Meins films!
