This programme presents films that illustrate the process of cinema, works and art, and turn them into art-house products: a conversation with Peter Watkins in Lithuania, where the British filmmaker lives in exile; the first film-installation by Harun Farocki, an art-house look at his own work; Peter Nestler’s portrait of Straub and Huillet, and Straub’s last film on the theme of one of Pavese’s Dialoghi con Leucò.
