The review of Ingemo Engström’s film Kampf um ein Kind (1975), in which Hartmut Bitomsky and Harun Farocki, two of the new members of the Filmkritik staff, appear as actors, is one of her regular texts for the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Grafe’s reflections on the essay film entitled “Found Fiction: Better Documentaries” was presented at the symposium Essay Films at the Stadtkino in Vienna in May 1991.
