The Death of Heroes (1979)

Film details


A cultural adventure involving Albert the Prince Consort, a writer on holiday, Field Marshall Montgomery, an author of bourgeois entertainment and others. Much of the discourse is centred around aspects of copyright and ownership, originality and genius. Based on the premise that the author as an individual is inconsequential to the understanding of a work, this experimental feature explores various works including the Albert Memorial.
