DOES ALL THIS MAKE ANY SENSE? - AND IF SO - WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG?

Documentary by Andreas Wilcke, 102 min, Germany 2019

For a quarter of a century, Frank Castorf has created a microcosm in the Volksbühne that many considered to be an identity-forming fortress and a renegade island in the increasingly chic and monotonous centre of the capital. The marathon productions for which he was responsible were true orgies of association that demanded everything from the audience. The film accompanies Castorf's final season and is there when the theatre people get together once more to start a last fireworks display in the face of an uncertain future.
