Der RieseDer RieseDer Riese

Der Riese is a pioneering compilation film using material from surveillance cameras. The images, which are inherently meaningless, only slowly reveal their implications. In his montage, Klier looks for the significant moment, but then leaves the images to roll by, contrasting them with a pathos-laden late romantic music, sometimes giving information about the “production conditions” and ultimately anticipating the robot camera that will explore the orbit.
