Introduction by Vincent Pauval, translator and collaborator of Alexander Kluge
Eighty years after the attempt to adapt Karl Marx's “The Capital” to a film by Serguei Eisenstein, the German director Alexander Kluge brings new life to the project. He combines documentaries and fictions, conversations with artists and intellectuals, such as Boris Groys and Peter Sloterdijk into a monumental film lasting nearly 10 hours. Kluge takes a look at art and cinema, while at the same time questioning the economic crisis, revolutionary thinking, modernity, utopia, technology… This major contribution by one of the great names of German film-making is presented in France in its complete version for the first time.
