Event Details

This first comprehensive retrospective in the UK dedicated to Angela Schanelec proposes a dialogue between the films of the German filmmaker and those by international directors such as Chantal Akerman, Edward Yang, Joanna Hogg, or Claire Denis.

Considered to be part of the so-called Berlin School, which emerged in the 1990s, with colleagues such as Christian Petzold and teachers like Harun Farocki, Schanelec (b. 1962) has subtly maintained a strong position towards neoliberal life in contemporary Europe. She poses important questions about what it means to be a woman, to care for a child or to fall in love. Schanelec’s unique approach to these topics is to focus on the silences rather than the sounds, to follow the disappearances rather than the appearances, to protect her protagonists instead of exposing their emotions.

By combining her work with that of other filmmakers the retrospective not only aims at placing Schanelec’s work into a larger context but also at offering new entry and exit points to a fascinating and baffling oeuvre.
Schanelec will be present at some of the screenings to talk about her filmmaking.

Always Somewhere Else—The Cinema of Angela Schanelec in Dialogue is curated by Patrick Holzapfel and organised by the Goethe-Institut London. With special thanks to the Deutsche Kinemathek—Museum of Film and Television Berlin.
