A Poetic Docufiction. Over three fever-dream nights in the Hotel Biron of Paris 1908, poet Rainer Maria Rilke encounters the ghost of his good friend, the artist Paula Modersohn-Becker, who died shortly after giving birth to her first child. Rilke surfaces from this haunting by composing his epic lament, "Requiem for a Friend", as a tribute to Paula. The Greater Circulation is a cinematic treatment enacting the central drama of Rilke's prose of a woman caught between sacrificing herself to her Art or her life to Motherhood.
"Antero Alli is clearly one of the great treasures of today's cinema. Not just the underground cinema, but cinema as a whole. The Greater Circulation is among his finest works. Anyone seeking lessons on how to create a wholly original work of motion picture genius can start here."
