All Feelings Believe in a Happy Ending is a study of Alexander Kluge that also emulates his technique of seeking and linking, first aired on February 18, 2002 on the German public televsion channel 3sat. Angelika Wittlich visits with Alexander Kluge. At his apartment in Munich, Germany, which also accommodates a small studio with a blue screen that he uses to tape his talks for VOX, RTL, and SAT 1. At Elmau Castle, where he wrote many of the stories for The Chronicle of Emotions. Kluge reads aloud, Kluge recounts, including stories from his childhood and youth, from the bombing of Halberstadt, his home town. “What you don’t understand as a child you will contemplate for the rest of your life.” Kluge does this as the author of films, books, TV programs. He has always had several professions at once. He is a legal advisor, director, author, founder of the television production company DCTP, and person in charge of its culture magazines. But if you think that these are all different jobs, you’re mistaken.
