l. Videograms of a Revolution


Harun Farocki & Andrei Ujica, Romania
1992, 1 min 28 sec

History takes place before your eyes in Harun Farocki and Andrei Ujica’s fascinating film covering the 1989 fall of the Ceaucescu regime in Romania. A radical, media-based chronology that condenses 125 hours of footage, Videograms of a Revolution carefully mediates perspective as it presents a picture of political turmoil as revealing and chilling as Eisenstein’s October. A recorded spectacle of dramatic, operatic and grotesque character.
