German Craftmanship

Leuchtkraft der Ziege – Eine Naturerscheinung | Das deutsche Kettensägenmassaker

The story of a young home moviemaker, who shoots an amateur film group as it is making a village murder mystery. This short is a surrealist satire that plays ironically and subversively with the conventions of cinema and the visual arts.

After reunification, former East Germans are massacred in the West by a family of cannibal butchers. The satirical horror film was a garish, blood-drenched commentary on the assimilation of the “brothers and sisters from the other side of the Wall”.
