THE LONG VACATION OF LOTTE H. EISNER
19th January 2018 @ 19:00 - 20:30
GOETHE-INSTITUT LONDON presents: THE LONG VACATION OF LOTTE H. EISNER (Die langen Ferien der Lotte H. Eisner).
This intimate portrait of Lotte Eisner conjures up a counter-history of German cinema, based on a kinship of flight and displacement. Eisner, a German-Jewish film critic best known for The Haunted Screen, her study of Weimar-era expressionist cinema, was born in Berlin but escaped to France in 1933. Thus began her ‘long vacation’, as she wryly puts it to Shahid Saless, some fifty years on in her Paris apartment: the moving encounter between two great exiles of cinema.
There is also a conference SOHRAB SHAHID SALESS – EXILE, DISPLACEMENT AND THE STATELESS MOVING IMAGE [19 JAN 09:30 to 18:00). Click HERE for details and to register.
Sohrab Shahid Saless: Exiles is curated by Dr. Azadeh Fatehrad and Nikolaus Perneczky in partnership with the Goethe-Institut London and in collaboration with the Munich Film Museum. With support from the Visual and Material Culture Research Centre, Kingston University (London), Iran Heritage Foundation (London) and Arts Council England.
