Filmspotting. Exploring the Deutsche Kinemathek’s Film Archive


This selection of seven short films by actor, director and film producer Eberhard Weißbarth is a trip back to West Berlin in the 80s and 90s. Tegel Airport and Café Kranzler are just some of the locations where these stories of loneliness, misunderstandings, and difficult relationships are set. Eberhard Weißbarth will talk with Martin Koerber about making the films and the production context in Berlin before the fall of the Wall in 1989/90. The multi-award-winning films were digitized last year and are now available as a part of the Deutsche Kinemathek’s distribution range. (ah). (29.4.)
