The State of Things
THE WIM WENDERS COLLECTION
THE STATE OF THINGS is a highly personal film about filmmaking in Europe and America. It is about a film crew stranded at the westernmost tip of Europe. Director Friedrich Munroe (Patrick Bauchau), cameraman (Sam Fuller), scriptwriter, and actors have been abandoned by their producer. After shooting their last feet of film (they are working on the remake of a low-budget sci-fi thriller), there is nothing left to do but wait.
