In Praise of the Revolutionary


In Praise of the Revolutionary


CATALOGUE TEXT
A sea (perhaps only a lake) of red flags. A piece of Peking Opera on the streets of West Germany, circa 1970. It could be an election campaign video for the Revolutionary German Worker's Party which is inserted at one point. Irony? Perhaps! Shot in Cinemascope, the film cost 10,220 DM to make according to the German Film and Television Academy archives.
