Karl May

Product Information
The second film in Hans Jurgen Syberberg s highly impressionistic German Trilogy, KARL MAY follows the last years in the life of Germany s most popular author. Karl May, a prolific and beloved writer, wrote rousing adventure tales set in America s Wild West, which mythologized a rustic lifestyle that appealed to German sensibilities and may have inspired the Nazi Party. Syberberg s meditation on May fuses theater, music, and cinema to offer a perspective on May as a man who mythologized himself as an extension of his art. KARL MAY picks up where Syberberg s Ludwig left off while prefiguring his masterpiece Our Hitler.
