Die Pferde des Rittmeisters Kapitánovi Koně

Directed by Clemens von Wedemeyer
Germany, 2016
Documentary, Short

Synopsis

This politico-aesthetic essay is based on found footage from the filmmaker’s family archive. The horrifying parallel between horse breeding and the Nazi racial ideology takes on sharp contours thanks to the dry commentary and the montages of seemingly meaningless, coldly real images.
