Tribute to Peter Nestler


Im Ruhrgebiet
Peter Nestler
Schweden 1967
34 min

This film is arguably Nestler's angriest documentary. It is a bitter personal statement about life in the Ruhr region: the fight against fascism, the reality of communism and his own struggle for acceptance in his native Germany. It confronts viewers with a sequence of rigid images that are accompanied by seemingly frozen voices, giving evidence of one big frustration. Nestler makes no compromise. There is only room for wrath in this impressively filmed «rebellion».
