Rare 1979 Kraftwerk Autobahn Animation

This is a rare 1979 animated video, by Roger Mainwood, for the Kraftwerk classic Autobahn.

Mainwood explains:

I remember wanting to specifically not have conventional cars in the film. I wanted a sense of a repetitive journey, and alienation, which I took to be what the music was about,…………hence the solitary futuristic figure, protected by large goggles, moving through and trying to connect with the journey he is taking.

Let me know what you think!

  1. This is excellent. I wish there was a DVD!

    Putting work like that together was a lot harder back then, before everyone had a video editing suite pre-installed on their “PCs”. Hats off to Roger!
