Film talk with Daniel Brettschneider (cinema maker, film curator, author and Offenbacher)

In 2013 the artist and filmmaker Jos Diegel, with his 16mm film camera, becomes a noisy archivist of the temporary exhibition hall “Artspace Rhein Main“ in the port area of a city named Offenbach. Almost five years later, the artist finds himself in a series of contradictions. The experimental documentary on analogue film footage, as psycho-geographic document of creative city development and contemporary cultural landscape, shows the situation of a city’s societal and cultural upheaval.  

Der Herbst des Untergrunds is probably the first film project in history whose protagonist is a director who wanted to make a movie, but who did not succeed in making everyone else believe that they were part of something big.  

Marked excellent by "kulturMut" - Crowdfunding-initiative of Aventis Foundation and Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain and supported by StartNext Crowdfunding.

Since his graduation at the HfG Jos Diegel lives in Offenbach and Berlin.
