In kaleidoscopic scenes, “Unstern” illuminates the very moment before catastrophe strikes; it is a blend of violence, nationalist propaganda, incipient battle cries, machismo and insecurity. Expressive images form narrative sequences of motion and performative scenes. A sequence of conditions, sensations and motives results in an image of a society on the edge of an abyss and the onset of a new era.
