Klaus Telscher: Experimental Cinema

Rating: 

Average: 3 (3 votes)

Klaus Telscher is one of the most important German experimental filmmakers of the 1980s and 90s. His sophisticated work is atmospherically dense, playful as well as caustic, and his complex filmic structures are matched by his subtle photography.
