DVD 1
100 YEARS OF ADOLF HITLER - The Last Hours in the Führer's Bunker
Christoph Schlingensief, GER 1989, 55 min + Extras

One light, one day, one leader. Five men, four women, dragged out of the darkness by a hand-held spotlight. We see the last hour in the Führerbunker as it really was.
The big names of the Nazi regime on the brink of its downfall fighting a very private war of their own. Gorging, screwing, machinating: the dark hallways of the Führerbunker are the perfect location for all kinds of excesses. Shot in complete darkness during 16 straight hours in an original World War II bunker, the only light source is Christoph Schlingensief’s flashlight guiding Voxi Bärenklau’s camera through the controlled chaos. Neither cast nor crew were allowed to go outside until the film was finished. – With Margit Carstensen, Volker Spengler, Alfred Edel, Udo Kier, Dietrich Kuhlbrodt, Andreas Kunze, Brigitte Kausch-Kuhlbrodt, Marie-Lou Sellem, Asia Verdi
Extras: Interview with Christoph Schlingensief – Language: German, Subtitles: English, Format: 4:3, B/W, Sound: Mono


DVD 2
THE GERMAN CHAINSAW MASSACRE - The First Hour of the Reunification
Christoph Schlingensief, GER 1990, 63 min + Extras

After the German reunification-syrup, here comes the film to wake you up! Loud and aggressive! Christoph Schlingensief’s unscrupulous response to German reunification!
On 29th November 1990 THE GERMAN CHAINSAW MASSACRE hit the German cinema screens. Christoph Schlingensief had shot his radical comment to German reunification within two weeks, shortly after 3rd October 1990. The events of that day were to lead to the discovery of one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of German history, in which a 6-headed West German family from the Ruhrpott butchered GDR emigrants one after the other. – With Karina Fallenstein, Susanne Bredehöft, Artur Albrecht, Volker Spengler, Alfred Edel, Brigitte Kausch-Kuhlbrodt, Dietrich Kuhlbrodt, Susanne Bredehöft, Reinald Schnell, Udo Kier, Irm Hermann, Eva-Maria Kurz, Ingrid Raguschke, Mike Wiedemann, Renate Koehler, Volker Bertzky a.m.m.

After ex-gangster Bössler and Jablo have found asylum in Rassau-City, the one is the owner of a furniture store now, the other of a little church , they use their forces exclusively to cleansing Germany in the sense of the Rostock pogrom. Only after they finished off a Polish family and a Western German social worker on the ride in the refugee train Rassau, the detectives of the German Federal Office of Criminal Investigation set out for Rassau and get into the vortex of the speeding events: A motorcyclist looses his face to Helmut Kohl. The refugee home management thinks of Treblinka concentration camp. The priest assaults a Thai woman. The shared past of all people involved strikes with mercyless impact: The Gladbeck hostage drama. When also the Nazis, a miracle healer and the minister come, Germany shows its true face. – With Margit Carstensen, Peter Kern, Susanne Bredehöft, Alfred Edel, Udo Kier, Artur Albrecht, Kalle Mews, Brigitte Kausch-Kuhlbrodt, Dietrich Kuhlbrodt, Detlev Redinger, Irmgard Freifrau Baronin von Berswordt-Wallrabe, Christoph Schlingensief, Wolfgang Korruhn, Gabriele Leidloff, Oskar Roehler a.m.m.
