  • Berlin—Pictures of a City

    1998. Germany. Written, directed, photographed, and edited by Manfred Wilhelms. Originally a painter and photographer, Wilhelms is a documentary filmmaker celebrated in Germany, but virtually unknown in America. The city of Berlin is his frequent subject. Completed ten years ago, this film, which portrays Berlin's fourth architectural renaissance in a little over a century, is only now having its American premiere. Wilhelms shows the city in the midst of radical change (the building of the Potsdamer Platz) while paying attention to its "old" architecture, including those buildings erected at the end of the nineteenth century as the city developed expansively, those built by the Nazis, those rebuilt after World War II, and those erected during Reunification. No narration, no dialogue. 82 min.

  • Hanna Hannah

    2006. Germany. Written and directed by Hanna Schygulla. Schygulla, born into the Third Reich during World War II, muses on why her mother gave her a Jewish name, and she visits Peter Eisenman's Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin. In German; English subtitles. 8 min.
