Einleitung zu Arnold Schoenbergs Begleitmusik zu einer Lichtspielscene (Introduction to Arnold Schoenberg's Accompaniment to a Cinematic Scene)
Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, RFG, , 1973 15', OV with Spanish subtitles, DCP
The title comes from a musical piece composed by Schoenberg before his American exile. The images and sounds come from an assembly of very diverse documents: anonymous photos of dead communards, B-52 bombers, images of the filmmakers in their daily activity and readings and quotations from Brecht, Schoenberg and Kandinsky.

Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, Austria, Italia, RFA, , 1975 105', VOSE, DCP
