Vergangenheitsbewältigung

A composite German word describing the process of coming to terms with ones past, vergangenheitsbewältigung, has become part of the core political culture of contemporary Germany. The new German Film, Der Baader-Meinhof Komplex, has attracted much attention throughout Europe, as it follows the vergangenheitsbewältigung theme.

this film looks at another chapter in German history: the rise, during the 1970s, of a radical left-wing group called the Red Army Faction (or the Baader-Meinhof Gang, after its leaders, Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof). Obviously, the group’s crimes were in no way analogous to those of the Nazis; the RAF ultimately murdered 34 people, while the Nazis murdered millions. Still, an honest reckoning with the past is exactly what the movie attempts. And, in providing a frank and unsentimental depiction of the brutal excesses associated with 1960s radicalism, it sets an example that Hollywood would do well to follow.

Hollywood could take a few pointers from German film producers. No major American film has dealt with topics regarding similiar domestic radicalism of Weatherman, or even the Black Panthers, with as equal honesty as German producers.

Snow Tour de SE Portland

Heidi Swift’s head cam cruising through SE Portland during our first snowfall of the season. I’ve got to say, the tunes will put you in the Christmas cycling spirit if freezing temperatures and icy roads aren’t enough.

Hat-tip to Wend Mag.

Race you there..

A must see upcoming screening of 2008’s Bicycle Film Fest. I can only imagine a solid festival turnout (Dec 12-13) as there is no snow to be skied. I do wish they’d come down on the ticket price a bit.

Woahhh..Its Fast Friday, via David Rowe.

Raiders of The Lost Ark: An adaptaion

As boys, Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb spent every summer from 1982 – 1989 (that’s eight summers, folks!) crafting their shot-for-shot recreation of the film they’d later entitle “Raiders: The Adaptation”. Amazingly they did actually finish the film.
