Monography: SAY GOODBYE TO THE STORY
What Happened to Magdalena Jung? Die Macht der Unschuld
What Happened to Magdalena Jung?
Federal Republic of Germany 1983
The “New German Film” was already dying when Christoph Schlingensief started to think about his love-hate-relationship with auteurism. Born in Oberhausen, where the legendary manifesto declared in 1962 that a “New German Film” would have to ﬁght for better production, release policies, and critiques of moving images, he mostly saw how much of the rebellious spirit had turned into eclectic boredom. So he started the ﬁght in his own way. WHAT HAPPENED TO MAGDALENA JUNG is a bizarre document of what happens if one really wants to “ﬂy”.
