  • Argila

    1969. West Germany. Directed by Werner Schroeter. With Carla Aulaulu, Magdalena Montezuma, Gisela Trowe. A syncopated double projection of the same film—one in black-and-white and silent, the other in color with sound—that has the effect of plunging its four actors into a kind of mise-en-abyme. As Wim Wenders observes, this gives us the strange sense of watching a film that is "simultaneously a memory of itself." Digital preservation of 16mm film. In German; English subtitles. 36 min.

  • Neurasia

    1969. Directed by Werner Schroeter. With Carla Aulaulu, Magdalena Montezuma, Rita Bauer, Steven Adamczewski. In a dark and spare theatrical space, four characters use gesture, language, and movement to explore themes of desire and mortality. Digital preservation of 16mm film. In German; English subtitles. 41 min.
