Miracles of Reality

Germany 2017 | 97:00 min

Original Title:

Miracles of Reality is an encounter with the versatile German performance artist and filmmaker Martin Kirchberger, who mixed up the narrow-minded atmosphere of his German home-town in the eighties. At the same time the film tells the story of the worst accident in the history of film production: 28 people died when a plane crashed during the shooting of a short ‘mockumentary’ about ‘security’.
After 25 years, Thomas Frickel draws a very personal portrait of his friend and colleague Martin – as a document of upheaval and awakening – and as a transgression along the fine line between fiction and reality.
