Mark Rappaport’s latest video is an extraordinary and profound exploration of the spatial, textual, historical and thematic threads that join together Alain Resnais’ Last Year at Marienbad (1961) and Night and Fog (1956), Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory (1957), the short film career of Françoise Spira, the representation of the Holocaust in films like Lars Von Trier’s Europa (1991) and Alan J. Pakula’s Sophie’s Choice (1982), and the material legacy of Dachau Concentration Camp. Moving beyond the often-playful speculation of many of Rappaport’s works, this haunted film spirals into the heart of 20th-century history, cinema, psycho-geography and atrocity.
