The Assault of the Present on the Rest of Time

Der Angriff der Gegenwart auf die übrige Zeit

Directed by Alexander Kluge
West Germany, 1985
Drama

Synopsis

An organic and fractured, yet humorous, intuitive, and poetic rumination on the integral – and correlative – nature of technology and (urban) identity, the intersection of film and new media in the creation of art, and the delusive quest to manipulate time.
