Evening of Amateur Films

The Aachen Film Club presents films by amateur filmmakers, including Hans Peters’s Tödliches Spiel and Werner Schmitz’s Das Frühstück. Wolfgang Becker summarizes the evening: “While the films shown were well made and constructed, they did not match today’s expectations of modern cinematic art. […] Film amateurs are the born ‘underground’ filmmakers and possess the appropriate equipment to strike out on new paths.” (from the A.V.Z., July 7, 1970)
