aka Gelegenheitsarbeit einer Sklavin
First screened in May 2012
Director: Alexander Kluge. Cast: Alexandra Kluge, Bion Steinborn, Sylvia Gartmann, Traugott Buhre, Ursula Birichs, Alfred Edel. Screenplay: Alexandra Kluge.

Twitter Capsule: Nuanced, headstrong docu(ish)drama takes a nimble range of positions on radicalized wife-mother

VOR:   The feminist conviction of a Born in Flames or Jeanne Dielman despite male signature, without rejecting narrative foundation. Reduces to no simple thesis or dogma. Kluge still under-screened in US.
