How to live in the German Federal Republic. Leben BRD (How to live in the FRG)

A film by Harun Farocki. Farocki's amazing dissection of modern life in Germany--in a country he calls "a training camp in which techniques for living are practiced by the professionally living." Composed entirely of 32 short scenes taken from instructional and training classes, these films, sometimes hilarious, and at times ominous, show rehearsals of real life situations acted out in practice sessions for dealing with life in modern day Germany. 1989. 83 min.
