DER BOMBERPILOT & NEL REGNO DI NAPOLI

DER BOMBERPILOT & NEL REGNO DI NAPOLI presents new, restored versions of two rare classics by Werner Schroeter that connect private stories with history: DER BOMBERPILOT tells the story of three eccentric women in Germany during the Nazi period who try to become show stars in America after the war; NEL REGNO DI NAPOLI is a chronicle of post-war Italy told from the perspective of a Neapolitan family. Additional features of the 2-disc DVD set include: a feature length, collage portrait of Werner Schroeter constructed by Gérard Courant, based on an audio interview with Schroeter at the Cannes Film Festival; a video of Werner Schroeter in a talk with the audience at the Austrian Filmmuseum from 1978; and stills from the shooting of NEL REGNO DI NAPOLI by Digne M. Markovicz.
