DESCRIPTION
Artists in the Big Top: Perplexed. West Germany. 1968. Written and directed by Alexander Kluge. Cinematography by Thomas Mauch, Günter Hörmann. Edited by Beate Mainka-Jellinghaus. With Hannelore Hoger, Alfred Edel, Bernd Hoeltz, Siegfried Graue. 100 min. Circus director Leni Peikert is in the process of establishing the circus of the future. Animals are not to appear all dressed up any more but are to remain natural, artists are not to perform any conjuring tricks any longer but instead explain physical laws. Implementation of this utopia, however, meets with a never ending series of obstacles...
