Spurred on by his zealous publisher, a wide-eyed American photographer roams the globe in search of the last remaining Lenin statues. But what he finds isn’t exactly what his publisher had in mind. An ironic take on post-Cold War Eastern Europe.

The deluxe edition contains two additional short films by Rick Minnich which he made in 1993 and 1994 in Berlin: "Next Time Everything Will Be Better" (Beim nächsten Mal wird alles besser) and "Delphi 1830". All films were shot on 16mm and were newly transferred to HD from the original camera negatives in 2016.

  1. Next Time Everything Will Be Better (Beim nächsten Mal wird alles besser)

    9m 15s · Streamable only

    “Next Time Everything Will Be Better”: An anarchist, an intellectual, and a dope-smoking pleasure seeker band together to take history into their own hands in post-Cold War Berlin. But things don’t always go their way when wires get crossed . . .

    Berlin, nach dem Kalten Krieg: ein Anarchist, ein Intellektueller und ein vergnügungs- suchender Kiffer tun sich zusammen, um Geschichte in ihre eigenen Hände zu nehmen. Aber die Dinge laufen nicht so...

  2. Delphi 1830

    2m 39s · Streamable only

    Using pixillation, DELPHI 1830 portrays one day during the 1993 Berlin Film Festival. The rapid speed of the images accompanied by the associative sound montage convey the hectic pace with which the film-obsessed protagonist races from one cinema to the next. In an exhilarating, often comical way, DELPHI 1830 depicts how we see and hear or how our sensory perceptions operate before our brain processes them.
