Harun Farocki’s Death

Harun Farocki

Really sad to see a filmmaker who has been so important to me and many around me die too soon. Up to his 70th year Farocki was still making great films, with In Comparison (2009), and A New Product (2012) both distilling and developing the critical clarifying view he has offered of this distorted world over the last 40+ years.

An essay I wrote responding to themes in Farocki’s work: https://saladofpearls.wordpress.com/2014/03/22/capitalist-limits-from-the-probability-of-exhaustion-to-the-exhaustion-of-probability/
