In this programmme we juxtapose two documentary portraits of strong women – Jürgen Böttcher’s Martha (1978) und Helke Misselwitz’s Who is Afraid of the Bogey Man? (1989). What distinguishes these two women and their circumstances? What do they have in common? How do both directors approach and stage their subjects in these films that were made just a little more than ten years apart.
We are pleased to present this event in partnership with Open City Documentary Festival.
