Johannas Traum and Rare Early Work

Stefan Drössler, director of the Munich Filmmuseum and an expert on the history of German cinema, organized the tour of Schroeter's films.

This presentation of Schroeter rarities includes examples of his early experimental work, digitally preserved by the Munich Filmmuseum. Aggression, Schroeter's first 16mm film, is a portrait of a woman; in Paula-"Je reviens," Schroeter stages actors in an empty room; and in Argila, a love triangle is revealed in split-screen. In the later Johannas Traum, Schroeter evokes the visions of Saint Joan, drawing on unused footage of Candy Darling and Ingrid Caven pantomiming in his 1972 film The Death of Maria Malibran.
