Event description

Description

This intimate portrait of Lotte Eisner conjures up a counter-history of German cinema, based on a kinship of flight and displacement. Eisner, a German-Jewish film critic best known for The Haunted Screen, her study of Weimar-era expressionist cinema, was born in Berlin but escaped to France in 1933. Thus began her ‘long vacation’, as she wryly puts it to Shahid Saless, some fifty years on in her Paris apartment: the moving encounter between two great exiles of cinema.

West Germany 1979, 60 min, digital version, German with English subtitles. Directed by Sohrab Shahid Saless. Cinematography by Ramin Reza Molai.


Sohrab Shahid Saless: Exiles is curated by Dr. Azadeh Fatehrad and Nikolaus Perneczky in partnership with the Goethe-Institut London and in collaboration with the Munich Film Museum. With support from the Visual and Material Culture Research Centre, Kingston University (London), Iran Heritage Foundation (London) and Arts Council England. Wewould like to thank our partner venues Close-Up and the ICA.
