The filmmaker Paul Poet inspired audiences in the PRESTO short film series at the Leipzig Book Fair with his ATTABAMBI SHITONME (55th Hof International Film Festival). The title itself is more than endearing. And it gets even better, because it's about Christoph Schlingensief, for the first time with TUNGUSKA – DIE KISTEN at the 18th Hof International Film Festival in 1984.
Theater the hard way: The famous German director Christoph Schlingensief, who died in 2010 and was honored a year later with the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale, is on the verge of becoming a recalcitrant state artist in 2003. When he staged Elfriede Jelinek’s Bambiland at the Burgtheater in Vienna and the Schauspielhaus in Zurich, he went beyond his personal limits. Paul Poet, friend and companion of Schlingensief, has assembled a provocative tribute out of fragments of a second cinema documentary that fell through at the time.
