Description
 
Harun Farocki's amazing dissection of modern life in Germany--a country he calls "a training camp in which techniques for living are practiced by the professionally living." Composed entirely of 32 short scenes taken from instructional and training classes, How to Live in the German Federal Republic shows Germany as a country where nothing happens without rehearsal and preparation. A "documentary film with performers," Leben BRD is a sometimes hilarious, often ominous, but always playful work in which life itself is an enactment. In German with English subtitles.

Harun Farocki---West Germany---1990---83 mins.
