MOVIES:

KLUGE’S KAPITAL

Art Forum: German filmmaker Alexander Kluge has been at work filming Marx’s magnum opus Das Kapital (1867). The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung’s Stefan Grissemann spoke with Kluge about his massive project—Nachrichten aus der ideologischen Antike (News from the Ideological Antiquity)—which will appear mid-November with the publishing house Suhrkamp as a DVD box with ten hours of viewing. Inspired by Sergei Eisenstein’s own unrealized plans to transform Marx’s main work into film, Kluge referenced Eisenstein’s voluminous notes and sketches to realize his own project, which also derives from notes, clippings, and interviews with writers Hans Magnus Enzensberger and Dietmar Dath, actress Sophie Rois, and philosopher Peter Sloterdijk, among others. “The revolution may be dead,” writes Grissemann. “As a film idea, it remains alluring. In Marx, we have a scout who can lead us through a highly complex world and back into antiquity,” said Kluge. To capture the destructive power of money, the filmmaker focuses on the Wall Street crash of 1929. “It’s not just about providing an artistic answer to this crisis but also a literary one,” Kluge told the FAZ.
