In 1982, Christoph Schlingensief met Werner Nekes and became his assistant at the Offenbach Kunsthochschule. A year after, he directed this short ironically dealing with the ideas of risk-taking and the emancipation of an endeavour. As the film opens, reckless students who tackle movie making without restraints are in opposition to talks on the greatness of cinema. Magdalena Jung pretends that she can fly by expanding the time between takeoff and landing, and a cowboy wearing dark sunglasses attempts to follow her –he's more concerned by his freedom of action than by rules of formal agreement.
