The crucial question right at the beginning of the semester. "What do you think of the University?", the Professor of the new lecturers want to know. The answer the head of the Institute, Brenda Berger (Sophie Rois) does not wait at all, a personal attitude is not asked in the modern research anyway. The production of knowledge: in a minute, the System is pushed by autologous blood doping. New findings, no one expected, because the research proposals must reformulate their results preform, in order to have any prospect of promotion. The earth is similar to our idea of the earth, and the University is the Simulation of an educational institution. Welcome to the Potato field of knowledge.
After Max Linz in his DFFB graduation film "I don't want to upset artificially" five years ago, the precarious existence in the German culture had made it the successor to "Sanssouci" to the Survival of the "Quantified Self avant-garde" in the Academy. "Hurry, hurry, it depends on the existence of excellence" is what drives Berger, the head of the Institute for Cybernetics at the University of Berlin, your colleague, Julius Kelp (Philipp Hauss), is working on a research project for the Simulation of climate scenarios. Unfortunately, his virtual reality looks like an Ego-Shooter from the nineties. "You're all pixelated!"
Counter-Theatre of hostility in the cinema
The Meeting with Max Linz takes place in a Turkish Café at Kottbusser Tor. The precarious life is familiar to him, the verschwurbelte Academy-the Jargon, the recalls in "Sanssouci" thanks to the high clock frequency of a Screwball Comedy and the discourse of the theatre of René Pollesch. "There is in the cinema at the moment, a Theatre of hostility, as that would have to do with anything," says Linz over a Cup of coffee. "There are aesthetic discourses between art criticism and film philosophy, in which Anti-theatricality is an important feature. Many Theatre Actresses and actors filmed the movies, but this Transfer does not mean that forms of theatre have been solved by a naturalistic representation, be taken to the cinema over there. I find it interesting, to bring together again.“
this idea is in Linz, in the German Film industry at the moment quite alone. Attention he attracted for the first time with his webseries "That Oberhausen feeling" on the occasion of the 50. Birthday, the short film days. It is the early attempt to map historical forms of political cinema and to make it productive again. Most film students today can Huillet with names such as Chris Marker, Straub-Yes, hardly what to do, know, at best, Alexander Kluge.
actress Sarah Ralfs is for Linz, what was Hannelore Hoger once for the Wise: a participating observer in a dramatic Society verkompliziere. Phoebe Phaidon, the pipes with Kelp the simulation project, select a career of least resistance. While a business consultant (Maryam Zaree) evaluated the work of the Institute for cost-effectiveness, driving forward the Abstract of the new Foundation, Professor Alfons-way (Bernd Moss) to be "Nudging"of the project. It comes to reward systems for self-optimization. The student body, from Phoebe with Adorno fed, is the influence of the neoliberal ideology of the suspect, they occupied the library. "Why, then, this commitment?", Berger wonders about the new Elan of the flaccid student body. "Sure not," replied Phoebe lacking in motivation.
"Certain speech at the Academy a grateful Gaglieferant are," says Linz. "So you take there relation to the world. I think that but for an accident: The language is not deformed, because you have to sell constantly. I notice this at the request of prose in the film promotion.“
Sophie Rois is essential for the Film
The Similarities between both movies are obvious. "On the phenomenal level as a time witness," announced Linz his method. Or simply put: Linz is for the German cinema is so important, because he has no fear of contact within the country's demented genre Comedy. Pain freed pun in "Sanssouci" on an equal footing in addition to fantastic visual Gags. The University conference room, he says, was the conference room of the Rand Corporation modeled after one that was in the Cold war, a major player in the military table-industrial complex.
Absolutely essential for the Film, Sophie Rois as the good, the bad and the ugly Conscience of the University. She also speaks the Voice-over. "This specific Rois's World money, says Linz, "the figure is never identical with the Performance, seemed to me to be exactly right for the role distance that must be taken by the management personnel within such institutions." The Apocalypse is with him at the end of a Simulation, but in a way, climate research and Unibet rubbed to be motivated similar, claimed Linz. The present conveys an idea of himself in the future.More about
