The earliest of the three videos here, “November,” from 2004, begins with clips from a film that Ms. Steyerl made when she was 17. In it she and a childhood friend, Andrea Wolf, play ninja revolutionaries, assaulting bad guys with scowls, sexy punk outfits and karate chops. A voice-over by Ms. Steyerl tells us that Wolf eventually became a real armed revolutionary in the Kurdish liberation movement and died near the Iraqi border in 1998, probably executed by the Turkish Army.
