  • German Film Institute 2012
  • Description: An institute devoted to "The Cinema of Crisis: German Film, 1929-1936." Meeting for the 14th time, and for the fourth time at Michigan, the week-long Institute comprises a series of screenings (archival prints and DVD copies of rare films) as well as a daily, three-hour seminar. The seminar is generally open only to admitted applicants who have publishing records in the field of German film studies, but the screenings, by contrast are open to the public, who are invited to benefit from the opportunity to see rare films from the crucial period in German cinema that involves the transition to sound, the financial / political crises of the late Weimar Republic, and the rise of Nazism.
    Daily screenings at 2pm, 4pm, and 8pm. For more information, contact Johannes von Moltke,
