Terrorism is nothing new. That's obvious in this dynamic film that deftly combines art, political history and film history. "Germany in Autumn" (1978) was produced in response to the kidnapping and murder of Hanns Martin Schleyer, a prominent industrialist, by a German left-wing terrorist group. An impressive group of West German filmmakers and writers responded with this collaboration featuring a series of nonfiction and fiction segments bookended by two funerals - the industrialist's at the beginning and the terrorists' at the end. Artists represented include Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Volker Schlondorff, Alexander Kluge, Maximiliane Mainka, Bernhard Sinkel, Heinrich Boll, Edgar Reitz, Katja Rupe and Alf Brustellin.
