Wat zo kenmerkend is aan Straub-Huillets cinema als materie-vormverbinding is dat het politieke cinema is – niet als een genre, maar in de specifieke manier van begrijpen verbonden aan Straub-Huillets opvatting en manier van werken van cinema. “Er is geen politieke cinema zonder moraal, er is geen politieke cinema zonder theologie, er is geen politieke cinema zonder mystiek.”
What is distinctive about Straub-Huillet’s film as a matter-form compound is that it is a political film – not as a genre, but in a peculiar understanding that amounts to Straub-Huillet’s conception and operation of cinema. “There is no political film without morality, there is no political film without theology, there is no political film without mysticism.”
