"Videograms of a Revolution"
Directed by Harun-Farocki/Andrei Ujica
History takes place before
your eyes in Harun Farocki and Andrei Ujica's fascinating film covering the
1989 fall of the Ceaucescu regime in Romania. A radical, media-based
chronology that condenses 125 hours of footage, Videograms of a
Revolution carefully mediates perspective as it presents a picture of
political turmoil as revealing and chilling as Eisenstein's October.
A recorded spectacle of dramatic, operatic and grotesque character. German
with English subtitles. 107 minutes.
