      EVENT DETAILS
      Interpreting History on the Screen: An Evening with Barbara Sukowa

      Barbara Sukowa in conversation with Hartmut Berghoff (German Historical Institute) and Wilfried Eckstein (Goethe-Institut Washington).

      Dramatic feature films have a profound influence on our knowledge and understanding of history. Through her portrayals of powerful women in history, Barbara Sukowa brings them to life and connects us to them. Through her, we discover the significance of these personalities anew and learn from history.
      How does Barbara Sukowa succeed in understanding these figures from such distant times? How do these stories manage to move us enough that we can relate not only to the heroines but also to the times? What can an actress impart that a lecturer cannot? 

      Independent thinkers, strong women ahead of their time – these are the protagonists in Margarethe von Trotta’s cinematic work. Actress Barbara Sukowa has lent her talents to the leading role in six of these productions. Audiences have journeyed with her as she fights for changes in society by joining the extreme left Red Army Fraction of the 1970s in Marianne and Juliane (1981), began the controversial 1960s unraveling of Germany’s Nazi past in Hannah Arendt (2013), formed Germany’s revolutionary 1919 Spartacus League in Rosa Luxemburg (1986), and transmitted her 12th century visions to the world for the glory of God in Vision – From the Life of Hildegard von Bingen (2009).
