SOMETHING BECOMES EVIDENT

West Germany, 1981 (MIFF 1982)

Director: Harun Farocki

The relationship between Anna and Robert, and Vietnam. Love and war are two points in a system of coordinates. Vietnam is seemingly very distant. Through pictures and their work, Anna and Robert let the war once again draw near: Vietnam in Berlin. In their relationship and in their work, they fail at their task; yet, as a result, new insights arise, a new bond.
