The Personal is Political – The Films of Margarethe von Trotta

The first female director to win the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival, Margarethe von Trotta is to thank for some of the most trailblazing films of the past five decades. One of the most gifted – but often overlooked – directors to come from the New German Cinema movement at the same time as Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Werner Herzog, we are delighted to be bringing von Trotta’s films back to the big screen for the recognition they deserve.
