Chronik der laufenden Ereignisse is a television film adapted from Peter’s Handke book of the same name. A hybrid work, that tells the story of two men, Spade and Beaumont, in Post-May ‘68 German Federal Republic. “It is, above all, a chronicles of images. Mixing diegesis and critique, by subtly overlapping different narrative levels, Handke describes the triumph of the television image over any story, over History.”
