Thorsten Lensing's production of David Foster Wallace's Unendlicher Spaß is accompanied by a screening of "The End of the Tour" at the Caligari FilmBühne. The film is based on the experiences of Rolling Stone journalist David Lipsky, who accompanied the author on the promotional tour of his new bestselling novel "Infinite Jest". During their multi-day road trip, the two getting snowed in at an airport, encounter annoying readers and attend a dance at a Baptist church. The experience allowed Lipsky to delve deeper into the literary genius's contradictory personality.
