RADICAL GERMAN CINEMA PT. 2: Helma Sanders-Brahms

Unfortunately U of A Visiting Film Professor Annette Brauerhoch will NOT be introducing the show tonight as planned. We wish her a speedy recovery!

In both her fiction and documentary films Helma Sanders-Brahms

(1940-2014) consistently explored political and social issues from a

female and feminist point of view. Characteristic for her works is how

she artistically approached topics like the student protest of the late

1960s, feminism, women’s lib, immigrant workers and the legacy of

Germany’s Nazi history. Tonight we screen her first feature film

Under the Pavement Lies the Strand (1975), a film dealing with legal

reforms like the abortion bill and the atmosphere and aftermath

of the student movement in West-Germany.
