Guest: Director Rainer Simon talks about TILL EULENSPIEGEL

22. October 2019 | 18:00 - 20:15

TILL EULENSPIEGEL

GDR 1974. Director: Rainer Simon
Cast: Winfried Glatzeder, Franciczek Pieczka, Cox Habbema. 104 mins. 35mm. German OV.

On the eve of the Peasant War the fool Till Eulenspiegel travels through the country and does not shy away from uncovering social grievances. This at times crude adaptation, in whose script Christa Wolf was involved, creates a multi-layered picture of the title character with references to the present. The film also raised the attention of the Stasi that commented: “It is more than a cheek that Simon dares such a thing and perhaps even has the hope that we wouldn’t notice that he probably thinks we are idiots”.

The event is part of the film series Classics & Rarities: Christa Wolf.
