Product Description:

This second film in Hans-Jurgen Syberberg's German trilogy (which concludes in his mammoth masterwork OUR HITLER) explores the perplexing figure of German writer Karl May. A popular spinner of Wild West yarns, May's escapist tales are shown, via Syberberg's cinematic kaleidoscope, to have some unsettling ties to the rise of the Third Reich.

Product Description:

The second film in Hans Jurgen Syberberg's highly impressionistic German Trilogy, KARL MAY follows the last years in the life of Germany's most popular author. Karl May, a prolific and beloved writer, wrote rousing adventure tales set in America's Wild West, which mythologized a rustic lifestyle that appealed to German sensibilities and may have inspired the Nazi Party.
Syberberg's meditation on May fuses theater, music, and cinema to offer a perspective on May as a man who mythologized himself as an extension of his art.
KARL MAY picks up where Syberberg's Ludwig left off while prefiguring his masterpiece Our Hitler
