White Wall Cinema's Socially Distanced Winter Screen presents
WEDNESDAY MAY 26TH
WOMEN IN HISTORY WEDNESDAYS
ROSA LUXEMBURG (1986)
DIRECTOR: Margarethe von Trotta
STARRING: Barbara Sukowa
Germany's foremost female filmmaker, and oft referred to as the world's leading feminist filmmaker (as well as the first female winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival) Margarethe von Trotta's 1986 classic Rosa Luxemburg charts the true life story and impact of the Polish socialist, Marxist and pacifist who was repeatedly imprisoned from 1905 onwards in both Poland and Germany as a response to her efforts to campaign for her beliefs and rail against the coming advent of World War I. A stunning central performance from Barbara Sukowa, a well known collaborator and star of the films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Lars von Trier, David Cronenberg, (and indeed again with Trotta on 2012's 'Hannah Arendt') was in this case the recipient of the Best Actress at the Canne film festival. A powerful document about a women's determination and dedication to her cause, Rosa Luxemburg is a landmark film about the female political voice.
