Abstract:
In 1942 Martin Heidegger delivered a series of lectures on Friedrich HÞolderlin's poem The Ister, lectures in which he addressed the political, cultural and military chaos facing Germany at that time. In this film, on a journey from the mouth of the Danube in Romania to its source in the Black Forest, three French philosophers, Bernard Stiegler, Jean-Luc Nancy, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, and the German filmmaker Hans-JÞurgen Syberberg, ponder Heidegger's philosophical ideas about technology, time, mortality, memory and history, and consider how they relate to today's Europe.
