Trailer for the short film THE SUPER (1985) directed by Tobias Meinecke
The film is a German language adaptation of the graphic novel THE SUPER by legendary American comic book artist WILL EISNER. The story is the third in an anthology of four stories entitled A CONTRACT WITH GOD.
The film was the last production at the famous BERLINER STRASSE lot in Bavaria Studios Munich, originally built for Ingmar Bergman's SERPENT EGG. The lot also served as backdrop for Rainer Maria Fassbinder's BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ.
Academy Award winning Cinematographer Igor Luther (The Tin Drum) joined the project as part of his teaching a cinematography class at Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film in Munich.
The film played theatrically in Munich and in New York City (Film Forum) and had successful participations at various international film festivals, most notably Rimini, Tel Aviv and Warsaw.
