THE DEFA Foundation presents

In the most recent volume of the DEFA Foundation’s series, Günter Jordan looks at the Dutch director Joris Ivens, whose work was closely connected to the DEFA and the GDR for almost 20 years. “Unbekannter Ivens. Triumph, Verdammnis, Auferstehung. Joris Ivens bei der DEFA und in der DDR 1948–1989” paints the portrait of a fascinating artist, describing the production of his DEFA films and examining their value and impact. JORIS IVENS – ER FILMTE AUF 5 KONTINENTEN (1963) shows the filmmaker in the editing suite and talking about his work. WINDSBRAUT (1998) portrays his wife, the filmmaker and actress Marceline Loridan-Ivens, with whom he made many films. Ivens co-directed DIE ABENTEUER DES TILL ULENSPIEGEL (1956), a Franco-East German co-production, with Gérard Philipe, who also played the role of the trickster who fought against Spanish rule.
