The definitive book about one of the essential artists in modern cinema. Peter Kubelka, creator of radical masterpieces such as Arnulf Rainer (1958-60) and Our Trip to Africa (1966) is also known internationally for his work as a teacher-philosopher - connecting the areas of art, cooking, filmmaking, music and archaeology in his lectures. "A polemical filmmaker" is a term often used in English-language texts about the artist. For those who know him personally, it is much easier: "disputatious, ironic, sarcastic", in any case "feisty" - that's what "polemical" ought to mean. This volume embraces the "polemical" man as well as the theorist and filmmaker.
