CONFERENCE notes on film 05

In this grotesque found-footage film close-ups of 65 actors playing Adolf Hitler in movies created between 1940 and today are combined in shot/countershot-manner. The soundtrack is produced by the Austrian composer Bernhard Lang. CONFERENCE is the fifth part of my “notes on film” series, which deals with film-theoretical and -historical subjects.
