Volker Schlöndorff: A Tribute
Volker Schlöndorff is one of the most prominent figures of New German Cinema that rejected German culture of post-WWII that ignored the War and the responsibilities of the previous generation. He worked alongside Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders, Margarethe von Trotta,
to name a few. Schlöndorff’s uniqueness comes from his determination to adapt “inadaptable” literary works and his stern and topical perspective on German society and his insistence of portraying it as grotesque. He offered sharpness and directness and the program this month offers the audience a rare opportunity to reacquaint with works that have significantly revolutionized cinema.
