Welcome to the almost last post of my Berlinale Mini-Series!
|~ Berlinale 2012 ~|
One of my favourite parts of Berlinale won't be a surprise for you: The Retrospective programme! It's part of the festival since 1977. "The Retropesctive is always dedicated to an important director or a film history theme"
This year it's called The Red Dream Factory - and it deals with films from a Russian-German film studio: Mezhrabpom Film - and its German branch Prometheus. Especially with it's films from 1922-1936. (well.. I think you know why the Russian/German co-operation didn't go on at some point in history..)
There are many interesting films (- please keep in mind: It's called RED dream factory..) in this programme like:
PESN O GEROJACH/KOMOSOL (SONG OF HEROES) (1932)
KONEZ SANKT-PETERSBURGA (= The End of St. Petersburg) (1927)
MISS MEND (THE ADVENTURES OF THE THREE REPORTERS) (1926)
|WOSSTANIJE RYBAKOW (REVOLT OF THE FISHERMEN) (1934)|
|~ especially interesting for me because it was directed by German theater legend Erwin Piscator ~|
- and as bit of a completely different world...
...some Berlinale guests of 1954:
|~ Gina Lollobrigida ~|
|~ Sophia Loren, Yvonne De Carlo (of whom I am a big fan..) and Gina Lollobrigida ~|
Thank you very much for listening!
Yours very well and truly
