FILM BEYOND CINEMA - THE DUMPSTER KID EXPERIMENT AND OTHER UTOPIAS
© Laura Ettel/Fiction Factory Robert Fischer Filmproduktion

In 1962, Edgar Reitz (HEIMAT) co-signed the Oberhausen manifesto that set the New German Cinema in motion. In 1968, Ula Stöckl emerged as Germany’s first feminist filmmaker. A year later, Stöckl and Reitz joined forces to create STORIES OF THE DUMPSTER KID, a series of 22 hilarious, irreverent short films that have been talked about – but rarely seen – for nearly 50 years. This is a documentary on the background and rediscovery of the DUMPSTER KID series, but also much more: Reitz and Stöckl are joined on-camera by Werner Herzog, Alexander Kluge and others to reflect on nothing less than the future of cinema.
