In conversation with the audience, Alexandra Wilcke talks about her work as a dubbing actress and singer and reveals the stories she associates with the Disney roles.
Pocahontas. USA 1995. D: Mike Gabriel, Eric Goldberg. Bluray. German language version.
As early as 1937, Disney presented the cartoon LITTE HIAWATHA (Little Eagle Eye), a popular short film from the “Silly Symphonies” series, which is about Native American characters and stories. Disney’s 33rd full-length animated film in 1995 followed on from this: It transfers the historical story of the Native American legend Pocahontas into the Disney universe and tells of the ambivalent confrontation of poaching robbers from the so-called civilized world who encounter supposedly undiscovered indigenous people. The catchy, award-winning film music by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz won two Oscars© in the categories “Best Musical Score” and “Best Original Song” (for “Colors of the Wind”).
The exhibition The Sound of Disney. 1928-1967
Our special exhibition The Sound of Disney. 1928-1967 presents the sound world of Disney classics from August 7, 2020, through January 10, 2021. The exhibition explores the use of music, sounds and dialogues in the original films as well as in the various dubbed versions. It focuses on the period from the short Mickey Mouse cartoons and films from the popular SILLY SYMPHONIES series from the 1920s and 30s to the feature-length masterpieces created during Walt Disney’s lifetime (1901 – 1966): from SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (US 1937) to THE JUNGLE BOOK (US 1967).
