Luchino Visconti / IT, DE, 1969 / 155 min.
Inspired by the family history of the infamous steel magnate Krupp, one of Hitler’s financiers. The Damned shows life behind the façade of big industry: as well as rich, the members of the (Krupp) dynasty prove to be immoral and extremely unhappy. This film inspired Ivo van Hove to make a play with the same title: see the exhibition All About Theatre About Film.
La caduta degli dei
All About Theatre About Film
Film and theatre influence each other continuously. To celebrate that relationship between the two worlds, Eye has invited stage director Ivo van Hove and scenographer Jan Versweyveld to compile an exhibition.
