RIP Christoph Schlingensief

” He also invited people to join an anti-chancellor swim in the then-Chancellor Helmut Kohl’s holiday retreat in Lake Wolfgang in Austria. His aim was to cause the lake to overflow with six million people in it, the number representing Germany’s unemployed at the time.”

I saw only one film of his: WHAT HAPPENED TO MAGDALENA JUNG? (1983). It is one of my most favorite films I saw in 2006.

  1. I am sad. Especially after Werner Schroeter’s death. I can only hope that Ulrike Ottinger, Herbert Achternbusch, Peter Kern, Robert van Ackeren, and Rosa von Praunheim will keep on making films for a long time.
