#26: Anja Kirschner & David Panos

Shifting between documentary, historical reconstruction and melodrama, Anja Kirschner's and David Panos' The Empty Plan interrogates the relationship between theory and practice in the theatre of Bertolt Brecht. The film contrasts scenes from Brecht’s exile in Los Angeles - 1941 to 1947 - with productions of his 1931 play The Mother in the late Weimar Republic, New Deal America and post-war East Germany.
