"Seit den 1960er Jahren hat Lutz Mommartz (*1934) den deutschen Experimentalfilm mitgeprägt. Mommartz begann als Autodidakt, wurde mit seinen Filmen erfolgreich in der Kunst- und Filmszene und erhielt 1978 eine Professur für Film an der Kunstakademie Münster (bis 1999). In seinen Filmen und kinematografischen Installationen untersucht er die Mission des Kinos, die Anonymität des Betrachters, den Realitätsanspruch des Films und den Zweck des Drehbuchs. 1980 drehte Mommartz den Langfilm...

1935 directed by Leni Riefenstahl starring Adolph Hitler with star appearances by Herman Goering, Josef Goebbels, Max Amann, Martin Bormann, Walter Buch, Heinrich Himmler and thousands of adoring Germans. The Fuhrer decends from the clouds to bless the German people with several days of speeches and fanfare to celebrate the takeover of the Nazi death-cult. This copy has been sharpened a bit and the audio boosted in places. Sieg Heil, everybody!  (English subtitles are burned in),

Gustaf Gründgens (Off), Peter Rübsam (Sculptor, On), Ingrid Lutz and Jürgen Kuhfuß (Sound) The film is a late payoff with a Genius, who took his job more important as the politics that led to total destruction. Actually only Alexander Kluge makes similarly complex, allusive films like Lutz Mommartz, although he always demands a much higher social- and world-entitlement. Mommartz himself remains modest. Here we have only Gustaf Gründgens and the emergence of the monument of Peter Rübsam...

Test filming with Eddie Constantine in Wiesbaden for the movie "Tango through Germany". For years I was looking for an actor who strives steadfastly afar. Someone who is not going for specific goal, but celebrates in a ritual way that it is about something that concerns everyone. Someone who makes a mark, provoking as a performance artist and takes the liberty to swim against the current. In April 1979, I found myself sitting next to Eddie Constantine. I told him about the project. He...

With Jürgen Kuhfuß "Monuments" is an attack on the meaning of monuments, here in Düsseldorf / Germany. And then suddenly a film with a recognizable concept was shown, an attack on the Monument Forest in Düsseldorf from imperialist and fascist days, along with the call to replace the monuments with memorials for the victims from these bloody times. That was a debatable attempt to make visible and attack the "Unresolved past". (PETER STEINHART, RP, 6.4.72)
