The German experimental filmmaker Harun Farocki died last week and the folks at Experimental Response Cinema leaped into action to plan a memorial screening tonight, 7:30pm, at the Austin Studios Screening Room.

Harun Farocki’s influential work ranged from agit-prop against the war in Vietnam, narrative fiction in the Marxist mode, documentary essays, and multi-screen installations. His obituary in The New York Times noted that Farocki made more than 100 films in his lifetime. Thomas Elsaesser has referred to him as “Germany’s best-known unknown filmmaker.” The films showing tonight are “An Image,” a 25-minute short from 1983, and Images of the World and the Inscription of War, a 73-minute feature from 1988.
