Staging Death

Innovative Cinema Short, AT 2022, digital, 8 min, OmeU
Program: 2551.02 – The Orgy of the Damned

There are many ways to die. Since the 1960s, Udo Kier has tried out his own death in a plethora of different roles and death scenes—at times loudly, at times softly, but always with characteristic eccentricity and physicality. Staging Death is the sensuous condensation of a death-defying career between Germany and Hollywood, film and television, art and trash.
