RHIZOM FILMGESCHICHTE is the name of the new digital education project of the DFF – Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum, which is now available online at www.rhizom.film. RHIZOM FILMGESCHICHTE is a sensually designed, intuitively operable extension of filmportal.de that presents the first minutes of numerous German films and invites users to discover film history. Thematic paths provide background knowledge on cinematic stylistic devices and the fascination of the beginnings of film as a special cinematic form.
Via thematic paths or works linked by keywords, the project invites users to playfully immerse themselves in German film history. With just a few clicks, users can move from silent to sound, from black-and-white to color, from Slatan Dudow to Wolfgang Staudte, Helke Sander to Wim Wenders, and learn incidentally what connects these films.
