Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw's play about the phonetics professor Henry Higgins who endeavors to get the flower girl Eliza Doolittle to pass as a lady, became even more famous with the filmed musical adaptation "My Fair Lady" starring Audrey Hepburn. Ludwig Berger's adaptation PYGMALION, which was made in the Netherlands in 1937, was very popular at the time but today it is widely unknown. The Deutsche Kinemathek and the EYE Film Institute Netherlands restored the work digitally as part of the "Arts in exile" project. It is now being screened in Germany for the first time. In her introduction, Heike Klapdor will give an insight into the particular conditions in which exiled filmmakers who had left Nazi Germany had to work. (ah) (19.6.)
