With Renate Meves and Gerd Hübinger. A woman looks during lovemaking to the viewer. "Way to the neighbor" is a ten-minute opus that Lutz Mommartz commented as follows: "A women communicates with the audience." More, in fact, does not happen. The devoted rapture in the face of the actor lets the viewer imagine that this is not a compulsory exercise, but a pleasurable freestyle happening. Lutz Mommartz is the purist among German filmmakers. His scenes focus on the basic...

With the Rockband "The Iceni" and NN Five men in white clothing floating against a black background. And in the split screen above the torso of a man. Below the lower body of the dancing girl from the "dance loop". More complicated is "Up / Down", that recorded alternately in slow motion and normal recording five male dancers and a female dancer. The image is divided horizontal in the middle so that the body of a man can be combined with the one of the girl. Then...

A short music video with the music of the band Mama Woju with the singer Markus Flaschenträger. The idea of the song and the video is a take off on the situation of a hitchhiker. In this song, the hitchhiker give a businessman a ride to Berlin. The special situation is that at this time you had to cross the DDR to go to Berlin so it was a very dangerous thing to take a hitchhiker on this road.(LM)

With Günther Uecker and Brigitte Stöckhert Male finger between two female fingers. Addicional eroctic giggling. In "The Finger" we see a male finger moving between two female fingers; with that the giggeling of a woman and a man. A film of sensual touch with all its related associations. (H.P.KOCHENRATH)

In the lower half of the screen the legs of a dancing girl can be seen, in the upper half of the screen we have perforated movie - in a butterfly way. "Danceloop" shows in the lower half of the screen the legs of a dancing girl, the rest of the screen is pierced in a fussy work with a needle. (H.P. KOCHENRATH, FILM, JAN. 69)

The film is a simulation of the alternating blinking of the eye by moving the lens of the camera from the right to the left and back.

Finally and infinitely brought to the point. (L.M.) The spectator hears that the train is coasting, but he sees that the train goes nowhere, a common view is mounted to a magical journey. (UWE NETTELBECK, DIE ZEIT, 5.1.68) The viewer pases, while the film rolls, different phases of experience: 1. He is confused and looks for an order 2. He discovered the two recurring cutting points at which use the same landscape pieces appear 3. He is pleased with his discovery and observes the neighbor 4. He...

1. As an unsuspecting wanderer between Maikammer and Hambach / Germany makes history. 2. Reassurance 3. Aborigines 4. Moons Lutz Mommartz' films focus attention on the mostly ignored confidante: The doves in the puddle, an ant swarm as a parable of human fuss, the course of the moon, flitting like a dirty spotlight through the night. Imperceptibly the only seemingly aimless camera succeeds to respond formally adequately to the brutal everyday life. In "The italien Hunt" the camera...

The author uses the camera as the eye, moves so one-handed through home and welcomes after peeing with his free hand, people at a party. I've seen "The Stairs", which was not shown in Knokke at the Cream Cheese, a Beat-Restaurant in the historic center of Düsseldorf, where films from Lutz Mommartz were projected on the wall. The film shows a man at home with the camera: A man who keeps a running camera in his hand, observing him making his household tasks. From a grotesque...

With Jörn Janssen, Ulrich Wiethoff and Norbert Stratmann in a conference without words. 3 men meet wordlessly and start turning their fingers at the edges of wine glasses until the sound becomes independent.

I threw the camera in the air and in this way I was able to express my aversion to conventional film show and skip my own limits. (LUTZ MOMMARTZ) "Selfshots" is the visual biography of an unconventional filmmaker. As a director, cinematographer and actor in one person, he points the camera on himself. He plays with her , throws it into the air, hurtling across the meadows, filmed his movements, his face and his hands and demonstrates in this way his adventurous relationship with a...

Hard-boiled eggs turn against black background. In "Trademark eggs" many eggs rotate continuously, as if by magic. The effect is achieved by a simple trick: The eggs were turned and shaken on a black plate. (LEXIKON DES NEUEN EUROPÄISCHEN FILMS) "Trademark eggs" shows a handful of these chicken-final-products, hard boiled like tracer bullets shooting over a black film, rotating on it. (KLAUS ULRICH REINKE, DÜSSELDORF, HEFTE, SEPT. 68)

View from hotel window on the nocturnal Rambla in Barcelona. An attractive middle-aged woman floats like a butterfly begging passers that pase by for something. The camera follows her - in real-time- with minimal interruption. At first I could not distinguish if this is a performance or life itself. (LUTZ MOMMARTZ)
