MALATESTA (West Germany 1969, 30.10., with guest Peter Lilienthal) is Lilienthal’s cinema debut. The Italian anarchist in London at the beginning of the 20th century is played here by Eddie Constantine. At his London emigration, he collects exiles from Eastern Europe around him. When some of them want to take what the world has kept from them with violence, the anarchist worldview gives away to a horrific misunderstanding.

ES HERRSCHT RUHE IM LAND (West Germany/Austria 1975, 31.10., with guest Peter Lilienthal) deals with the consequences of the military coup in Chile, which destroyed the hope of a peaceful transition to a more socially just life for an entire generation.

The film series, which continues in November, was put together as a collaboration between the Deutsche Kinemathek, the Vietinghoff Filmproduktion, the Zeughauskino, the Akademie der Künste, and the Edgar-Reitz-Stiftung. The digitization of the films was supported by the FFA’s film heritage funding program. (mk)
