About This Screening
The arresting, eloquent persuasion of Ulrike Meinhof emerges full force from this brilliant debut feature by Jean-Gabriel Périot who culled German television libraries to deftly assemble a dense mosaic of still-urgent archival footage tracing the Red Army’s birth and fall. Wisely refusing any kind of overarching commentary, Périot allows Meinhof herself to raise the incredibly timely question of how a true revolution might be won without a disastrous turn to violence. —Haden Guest, Film Comment.
