Klaus Wybornys film Verlassen; verloren; einsam; kalt (Abandoned, Lost, Lonely, Cold) is a highly accomplished attempt to portray the history and the consequences of European colonization between 1550 and 1914. Taking the British Empire in Africa as a setting for his experiment, the filmmaker uses Ludwig van Beethovens «Missa Solemnis» as a metaphor to express the European will to rule the world. In the same way the ingenious composer succeeded in organizing soloists, choirs, and the orchestra by subtly arranging the structures of his opus, Wybornys images convey the coordination of the economic and political control of the world.
