Directed by Schmelzdahin
West Germany, 1989
Avant-Garde, Short


In Krepl the political dimension of Schmelzdahin’s work takes shape. Here the color peels off the images of scientific and colonial documentary footage. Terrifying, those bodies dismembered by scalpels, those giant hamsters, those natives threatened by a camera they unsuccessfully try to repel.
