Filmspotting: Exploring the Deutschen Kinemathek’s film archive

LEBENSGESCHICHTE DES BERGARBEITER ALPHONS S. (Christoph Hübner, Gabriele Voss, FRG 1978) is a four-and-a-half-hour-long portrait of the miner Alphons Stiller that was made in 1978. In the documentary, which won the Adolf-Grimme award, Stiller talks about his childhood as the son of a drinker, about his youth as a miner in the Ruhr and Saar regions, his time as a hobo in 1920s Germany, working as a laborer on properties in Mecklenburg, as an anarchist and a left-wing socialist - but above all as a clever and alert eyewitness of everyday history in the years from 1906 to 1939. The film has now been restored and digitalized and a DCP is available at the Kinemathek. Christoph Hübner will present three of the eight episodes to mark the release of the DVD. (ah) (18.6.)
