"DER ANDERE BLICK / THE OTHER EYE"
Hannah Heer & Werner Schmiedel
1991, 16 mm, 130 min.

"This breakthrough filmessay explores the strange case of G.W.Pabst, the Austrian Film Director who was considered a giant of early cinema before his reputation went behind a cloud. The film takes us through his work with Garbo and Louise Brooks, and his making of such classics as "Pandora's Box", "The Joyless Street", and "The Threepenny Opera". But this is no ordinary film tribute. Co-directed by the cinematographer Hannah Heer (Sugarbaby) and Werner Schmiedel, who utilize a stunningly color-photographed, jazzy style, and a sophisticated narration, it probes unflinchingly the controversy surrounding Pabst: What possessed this liberal, cosmopolitan filmmaker to return to Austria in 1939 and direct movies for the Third Reich?"
