The DEFA Foundation presents

THE TIME IS NOW, 1987 (©DEFA-Stiftung, Wolfgang Dietzel)

Carte blanche to Erika Richter: The anniversary publication to pay tribute to the dramaturg and film publicist Erika Richter is called "Liebe zum Kino "(A love of cinema). During our film evening to celebrate Richter’s 80th birthday, we will gladly fulfill her wish to see two of her favorite films again. The essayistic documentary THE TIME IS NOW (Eduard Schreiber, GDR 1987) follows the traces of critical reflection: Between the two questions of what a human is and what peace is, it creates a space for the words and memories of unusual interview partners. FARIAHO …!(Roland Gräf, GDR 1983) is about an old, itinerant puppeteer accompanied by some youths, as well as by his past. The journey becomes a conflictual debate with his own ideas, but also with GDR society after the war. Erika Richter was dramaturg for the second film, while her partner Rolf Richter worked on the first film’s screenplay. (rp) (8.1.)
