Gefängnisbilder

Deutschland / Frankreich 1999/2000, TV-Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

Harun Farocki confronts current prison and surveillance images with quotations from film history and refers to the philosophers Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze contentswise: "The cinema has always felt attracted to prisons. Today, prisons are fully equipped with video cameras for surveillance. These images are unedited and don’t chance their format, they lack the concentration of time and space. Thus, they are particularly suited to express the uneventful nature of the punishment the prisoner is sentenced to. The surveillance camera images show the norm and look to a deviation." (Harun Farocki)
