Ingo Petzke Northern Lights 2015
Ingo Petzke is an internationally acknowledged German film scholar, filmmaker and author.

His experimental shorts screened at numerous domestic and foreign festivals. 1976–2000 his company CINE PRO acted as sole German distributor specialised in Avant-garde/Experimental Film. During the 80s Petzke was a member of the Film Commission of Goethe-Institut - German Culture Institute, for which he curated several packages of Experimental films and Shorts.

By the ‘80s, inspiration seems to have fizzled out. This may be because Petzke started a full-time professorial career. But it may well have been because in Germany the experimental movement in general started somewhat disappearing once their dominant figures were appointed professors mostly at arts academies.

In all, the films on this compilation look like a true reflection – those were the days...
