Peter Fischli David Weiss on Kino Süd

Three 1980s films by Peter Fischli David Weiss are currently featured on the online viewing platform Kino Süd as part of their spring programming. The artists' first film together, Der Geringste Widerstand (The Point of Least Resistance), 1981, follows a rat and a bear as they attempt to profiteer off of the Los Angeles art market. The two animals reappear in 1983's Der Rechte Weg (The Right Way), in which their urban adventures have been abandoned to brave the elements in the open countryside. The post-apocalyptic Der Lauf der Dinge (The Way Things Go), from 1987, rounds out the programming. Shot in a warehouse, the film documents a series of chain reactions among commonplace items as they tumble, roll, and collide with one another.

To watch Der Geringste Widerstand (The Point of Least Resistance), Der Rechte Weg (The Right Way), and Der Lauf Der Dinge (The Way Things Go), please visit Kino Süd's website.
