DEUTSCHE DOCS: THE CONTEMPORARY GERMAN DOCUMENTARY
January 26 – February 6
As part of our ongoing collaboration with the Goethe-Institut New York, we have organized this series highlighting the extraordinary richness of contemporary German documentary filmmaking. While the selection includes films by several long-established masters of the form – including Ulrike Ottinger, Rosa von Praunheim, and Harun Farocki (all subjects of recent Anthology retrospectives) – we have chosen to highlight films made in the past decade, to emphasize the continuing vitality of the German documentary and the emergence of a new generation of non-fiction filmmakers.
Very special thanks to Juliane Camfield (Goethe-Institut New York), and to Thomas Heise, Volker Koepp, Rosa von Praunheim, David Callahan & Elena Rossi-Snook (NYPL), Lisa Fidyka (Telepool), Sarah Heidel (m-appeal), Jonathan Miller & Livia Bloom (Icarus Films), Angelika Ramlow & Nora Molitor (Arsenal), and Ina Rossow (Deckert Distribution).
Unless otherwise noted, all films are in German with English subtitles.
Please note: Two of the stars of SURVIVAL IN NEW YORK and NEW YORK MEMORIES, Anna Steegmann & Claudia Steinberg, will be here in person on Thursday, January 26th, to introduce both shows and answer questions following SURVIVAL IN NEW YORK.
