“Kubelka’s Africa is magical. (…)
OUR AFRICA JOURNEY / UNSERE AFRIKAREISE, and many consider it Kubelka’s masterpiece, is infused with a shocking mysticism of yearning. Here, we find the perfection of Kubelka’s reflections on beauty and the hidden poetic eroticism of Nature. (…)
In UNSERE AFRIKAREISE Kubelka puts his finger on the awful stupidity of modern civilization with all its efforts to triumph over ‘primitive’ cultures.”
Ex.: Stefano Masi: Die gemeißelte Zeit, (1984; 1990 revised)

“Peter Kubelka is a perfectionist when it comes to film as a medium: And since I at present appreciate this quality more than any other (and at present otherwise find it nowhere), I would simply say: Peter Kubelka is the best filmmaker in the world. Which is another way of saying: Watch his films! ... definitely, before all others...”
Ex.: Stan Brakhage: Über Peter Kubelka, (1967)
