Synopsis
In 1962, Edgar Reitz ( Heimat ) co-signed the Oberhausen manifesto that triggered the New German Cinema; in 1968, Ula Stöckl emerged as Germany’s first feminist filmmaker.
A year later, Stöckl and Reitz joined forces to create Stories of the Dumpster Kid, a series of 22 hilarious, irreverent short films that have been talked about – but rarely seen – for nearly 50 years. This is a documentary on the background and rediscovery of the Dumpster Kid series, but also much more: Reitz and Stöckl are joined on-camera by Werner Herzog, Alexander Kluge and others to reflect on the future of cinema.
