Georg (Stanton Kaye) is a cameraman who returns from filming bloody battle scenes in World War II. He returns stateside to a world that cares nothing about the destruction he has seen or photographed. His father vacuously watches television, often talking to the screen. When his pregnant wife dies, Georg sadly buries her on a lonely hillside. He takes up his frustration with the cold, cruel world haunted by trying to throw some dynamite at an American missile base. After he is vanquished, an inquisitive soldier peers into the camera before turning it off once and for all. The film was made in 1964 and appeared at the 1968 New York Film Festival to a much wider audience.
