BR Deutschland 1983, Kurz-Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

The film documents the production of a foldout pin up photo for the "Playboy" magazine. Harun Farocki elucidates: "My film takes its material from the situation that people work for four days on an image that is supposed to be published in the centerfold of the "Playboy" magazine. (…) The naked woman in the centerfold is like a sun with a revolving system around it: Culture, business, living! (You cannot see or film into the sun). One can imagine that people who have to produce an image of such gravitational force have to do it with the same diligence, seriousness, and responsibility, as if they were involved in nuclear fission. Today, printing companies and publishing houses, the advertisement business, hotels and clubs, galaxies of millions of Dollars, a whole commercial cosmos circle around the naked girl in the centerfold of the "Playboy" magazine; every month, a new girl takes center stage. A single point has no expansion and is invisible. That is what we have filmed."
