Tschak Tschak

West Germany, 1985 (MIFF 1986, Video Visions - The Hero)

Director: Manfred Hulverscheidt

In his requiem for a friend Hulverscheidt uses the image and sound material from a broadcast about the funeral ceremony for the newspaper magnate Springer, in the Berlin Memorial Church. This reworking of the material gives the hero s funeral an Ironic undertone.
