Peter Kern

A 2002, 80 min

In his documentary with fictitious elements, Peter Kern shows how Christoph Schlingensief bans political parties in ‘nazi-free’ Switzerland, stages Hamlet at Zurich playhouse and socially reintegrates Neo-nazis at the same time. Time is off the rails, there’s something wrong in the state. Schlingensief’s Hamlet reaches out to politics and to life and triggers joy, laughter doubt and horror.
Kern operated with his film team, from within and from behind the scenes, as a confident of Schlingensief, and as actor in the play: he plays King Claudius.
