How Film Writes History Differently: Frieda Grafe – 30 Films (3)
The retrospective of Frieda Grafe's 30 favorite films returns for its third and final part on two days in October before continuing from November 1-3. The first evening brings together Guitry and Godard, about whom Grafe wrote, "His admiration for Sacha Guitry can be understood as follows: his films provided documents of discovery. Great films are those in which the fusion is complete." On the second evening, Jerry Lewis is brought into contact with his cinematic roots: the silent film comedy as personified by Capra's Harry Langdon film THE STRONG MAN. As already in the first two parts of the series on Frieda Grafe's favorite films shown in April and July, all ten films will be introduced by the authors who have written new texts on them to appear in a book published by Brinkmann & Bose to coincide with this section of the retrospective.
