West Germany 1968
Dir Ula Stöckl
With Liane Hielscher, Kristine de Loup, Jürgen Arndt
A dazzling conversation between five different women, from anti-Vietnam protests to pigtailed picnics. Shot in Techniscope, and lovingly restored by Deutsche Kinemathek, the first post-war German feminist film is as relevant now as it was in 1968, and conjures lush worlds similar to Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s, with whom filmmaker Ula Stöckl worked.
