THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Einstürzende Neubauten (Halber Mensch 1985) [01] Armenia.

Halber Mensch (also known as 1/2 Mensch) is a 1986 film by Japanese director Sogo Ishii with German band Einstürzende Neubauten. It was originally released on VHS, and re-released on DVD in 2005. The film’s title comes from the album of the same name.

The one-hour film documents Einstürzende Neubauten’s visit to Japan in 1985. It includes concert footage along with scenes of the band performing in an industrial building. Several songs from the “Halber Mensch” album are presented as music videos, some with accompanying Butoh dancers.
