Alexander Kluge

ALEXANDER KLUGE (*1932) is a legal expert, author, director and one of Gemany’s leading intellectuals. He has in the past collaborated with Adorno, Lang and Fassbinder – and now once again with KHAVN (*1973). With 50 long and more than 100 short films under his belt, the Philippine avant-gardist is one of the most productive filmmakers of the present, as well as being an author and musician.

[⏵] ESSAY The second collaboration between Kluge and Khavn is an aesthetic mash-up – with a wonderful accomplice in Lilith Stangenberg. While in Happy Lamento (FILMFEST HAMBURG 2018) these two exceptional auteurs used material from their archives, Orphea has new content – albeit with a classical source. The portents and endings of Orpheus and Euridyce have changed: with Khavn and Kluge it’s an Orphea who descends to the underworld, not only to liberate her Euridyco, but the whole of extinct humanity. Between Kluge’s green screen studio and the megacity Manila everything is on the table: Rilke and Adorno, Tchaikovsky and rock, mammoths and immortality.
