Artist and filmmaker Philipp Humm is excited to announce that The Last Faust, starring British screen and theatre icon Steven Berkoff, (Octopussy, The Tourist, Harvey, Shakespeare's Villians) will be released on VoD on 18th November. The film will premiere in London and Berlin on November 13 and 14.
This 108 minute arthouse feature film is the only definitive filmed version of Goethe's epic drama, Faust 1&2, making the release a world first. The film is a vital component of Humm's Gesamtkunstwerk (Total-Works-of-Art) and offers an unparalleled artistic examination of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's tragic masterpiece. Humm's Total-Works-of-Art, which has been compared to Matthew Barney's iconic Cremaster Cycle, is composed of 150 works of art, including bronze sculptures, fine art photographs, oil and watercolour paintings and an illustrated novella. This vast and multifaceted collection of artwork is due to be exhibited in 2020. Try the trailer at the link.
