What Farocki Taught is a stubborn film, containing a perfect replica, shot-for-shot, in color and English, of Harun Farocki's 1969 b/w German film 'Inextinguishable Fire' - about the production of Napalm, the abuses of human labor, and filmmaking. The film radically questions the significance and conclusiveness of "found footage" or handed-down material by denying any historical distance to the political situation criticised by Farocki.
