Sample text

The film quickly cuts away to a shot of the two of them mid-climax, lying nearly motionless on a bed under an unpainted ceiling, their bodies—he is stark naked, she is fully clothed—half hidden by a camera angle that suggests the perspective of a voyeur who has stopped short of entering the room upon discovering the two in an intimate moment [Fig. 11]. But the scene is as unerotic as it is squirm-inducing; partly because of the circumstances of which the viewer is aware (and Josef is not) and partly because of how the couple is positioned in the static, medium shot of the bedroom.

The funding, distribution, and success of the Berlin School—or lack thereof as representatives of the German film industry like to proclaim—already depends largely on German (and Austrian) television. And while the staging area for film (the big screen)—as well as the medium itself—has changed dramatically, cinema holds the hope, if not the promise, pinned to it in its formative years of producing a collective vision shared by its filmmakers and its public. When Hochhäusler proclaims that ‘cinema can only survive in its audience,’41 this also implies that if it can, it will do so in ways that the cultural productions of the new media do not, at least not as a collective social product.

There are films, but there is no public for them. ’40 And yet, as pessimistic as this declaration is, it seems to suggest that film still plays a meaningful role in the new media landscape. Petzold does, after all, continue to make films for a public of some kind.
