United Trash – The Slit (Christoph Schlingensief - DVD Edition)

UNITED TRASH – THE SLIT (CHRISTOPH SCHLINGENSIEF - DVD EDITION) (United Trash – Die Spalte (Christoph Schlingensief - DVD Edition)) Christoph Schlingensief, D 1995, 77 min

With Kitten Natividad und Udo Kier!

With his theater and art actions, as a filmmaker and opera director, Christoph Schlingensief (1960–2010) shaped cultural and political discourse in Germany over two decades. His eighth feature, “United Trash”, brings the “First World,” Western civilization and the “German essence” back to Africa.

Brenner, a gay general, tyrannizes the people in a UN camp in Zimbabwe. His wife gives birth to darkskinned Peter Panne, he has a deep cleft on his head and the locals worship him as the Messiah. Everyone wants to use the boy for their own ends. The overarching question is: Can Peter stop a leftover V2 missile from being launched at the White House?
