Amerika - Class relations23 Jun 2016
The event is over
Adapted from the first chapter of Franz Kafka's unfinished novel Amerika, the film depicts the fall of Karl Rossmann, a German teenager of 16 who is forced to leave for the US. The hero is confronted with the differences between social classes and individualism in the early period of American capitalism. "What is Amerika about?" wondered Jean-Marie Straub himself. "People who are afraid of losing their jobs. It's much more important than bureaucracy."
Presented by Patrice Rollet.
En rachâchant (1982, 7’) followed by Amerika-Class Relations (1984, 130’), by Straub and Huillet.
