München 1945 & Zwischen gestern und morgenMünchen 1945 & Zwischen gestern und morgen

Edition Filmmuseum 45

The 2-disc DVD presents newly restored footage which was shot in Munich just a few weeks after it was taken by the American troops on April 30, 1945. We see the enormous damage of the bombings which destroyed about 90% of the center of the city. Harald Braun's Zwischen gestern und morgen was the first post-war film shot in Munich. Love, betrayal and tragedy occur one night in a luxury hotel. Years later the protagonists are united again and face a decade of regrets, hate and unanswered questions caused by the war. Their lives are in ruins, just like the bombed hotel. The film features many former UFA stars, as well as Hildegard Knef who became the first new star of the German post-war cinema.

Schnitte in Raum und ZeitSchnitte in Raum und Zeit

Edition Filmmuseum 12

A film editor's work is as essential as it is invisible. Its outcome, the finished film, is the result of weeks of concentrated labor. Frequently, in documentary filmmaking, the work's narrative structure is mainly shaped in the editing process. The editor functions as co-author, juggling and organizing the raw material at hand, and structuring the material according to principles of space and time, rhythm and composition. This extensively supplemented 2-disc DVD explores this process in a documentary feature by filmmaker Gabriele Voss, a film editor in her own right. Renowned editors, a brain researcher, as well as writer-director Alexander Kluge, talk about their work, oscillating between craft and art. Selected film clips illustrate the techniques and tricks that make up the magic of film montage.

Der Sekretär & Ein WeimarfilmDer Sekretär & Ein Weimarfilm

Edition Filmmuseum 103

With his "production films", from Ofenbauer, Stars, Der Sekretär and Ein Vertrauensmann to Wäscherinnen, Jürgen Böttcher emancipated himself from the conventions of Socialist Realism and placed the focus of his work inspired by Cinéma vérité and Direct Cinema on pure observation. The commissioned short films Im Pergamonmuseum and Tierparkfilm subversively tested the censors' tight restrictions. In 1977, Böttcher began his long-term collaboration with cinematographer Thomas Plenert, resulting in Im Lohmgrund.
