Helden (Heroes)

Netherlands, 1979 (MIFF 1986, Video Visions - The Hero)

Director: Claus Boegel

Boegel parodies the hero by imitating Bowie. His appearance evokes the image of the pop star which he clearly is not. A woman's fate is projected behind him. As the number progresses, more and more white fluid escapes from her mouth.
