Germany In Autumn

Produced in response to the kidnapping and murder of a prominent industrialist by a German terrorist group 30 years ago, this film will resonate with today's audiences who are all too familiar with

political terrorism.

Germany In Autumn features a series of nonfiction and fiction segments bookended by two funerals the industrialist's at the beginning and the terrorists' at the end. More of an essay than a

straightforward documentary, the film captures impressions of this explosive and emotive moment in Germany's history by several directors of the New German Cinema, including Alexander Kluge, Volker Schlondorff, Edgar Reitz, and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. In Kluge's segment, teacher Gabi Teichert strives to better understand German history through investigating her country's penchant for strident nationalism.

Political history and film history intersect in this dynamic film that deftly combines art and politics.
