In
Ihre Zeitungen (1968) Harun Farocki reacts to the central political events of 1968—the anti-Springer campaign and American war crimes in Vietnam—with an agitation film shot as a form of political work.

Helke Sander and Carlos Bustamante, who studied with Farocki at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (dffb), show interventionist means of politicization similar to Harun Farocki’s own. Helke Sander’s Brecht die Macht der Manipulateure (1968) documents the campaign conducted by Harun Farocki and others to disturb the Federal Press Ball in Berlin.
