Film, 88 min.

This film screening is part of the project "Hauntings", curated by Christian Höller and Thomas Edlinger, which explores more secret and uncanny presences in media, art and pop.

An unsafe harbour under the control of foreign tongues: in Hamburg, a ship has been abandoned by its owners. The crew calls on the help of the ghostly cadres of the Comintern, who take possession of a documentary film-maker’s consciousness. Agitprop as a revenant grown savage and internationalist during the years of its absence. Revolt and voodoo or the invocation of a past in the service of a future that deserves this name.
