Filmmaker and writer Alexander Kluge combines fiction and reality to deliver one of the most striking testimonies that have been written about the bombing of German cities by the Allies.
Alexander Kluge is recognised internationally as an author and filmmaker; he is regarded as a driving force behind New German Cinema and as one of the major German fiction writers and essayists of the post-war period. What is less well known is that Kluge has revolutionized German television as well. Since 1988 he has been producing a magazine programme for commercial television which, as Tom Tykwer puts it, is “antidotal” to the common lack of imagination in the medium.
