Heroes/Das Konzept

  • Czech Republic

Two films in one, thematically interconnected by the symbol of the Twin Towers of Manhattan, follow possible causes and consequences of the armed fight for freedom. On the background of the narrative of the brief history of idedeological consistency, the tension between documentary and fiction, embarrassment and stylized play, black-and-white 16mm film and video images in color collapses. Studio versus reality; theory in practice. A romantic comedy based on the motives of the mournful life story of the founding member of the terrorist organization Red Army Faction Ulrike Meinhof. A montage reflection on the destructive dimension of creation and the creative dimension of destruction. Aux armes, citoyans!
