A Credible Utopia: Essays on Selected Films of Werner Schroeter

Peter Valente

A Credible Utopia: Essays on Selected Films of Werner Schroeter offers unique and personal insights into Schroeter’s cinematic universe. When the Museum of Modern Art staged a retrospective of Schroeter’s ouevre in 2012, there was hardly anything in English on his films and only one film available on DVD in the US, such that Schroeter’s work as a director has remained largely invisible in the English-speaking world. A Credible Utopia repairs this lacuna in film history, and, in a detailed and intimate reading of Schroeter’s queer ouevre, links all these films together through Schroeter’s desire for a “credible utopia,” despite our shared awareness of disaster, torture, viciousness, and political corruption in the world. Peter Valente is a writer, translator, and author of twelve books, including a translation of Nanni Balestrini’s Blackout (Commune Editions, 2017), which received a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly.
