A curated photo exhibition of stills of the
productions included in the film tour is available to interested venues.
Culled from the archives of the Filmmuseum Potsdam and never before exhibited
in North America, these stills lend insight into the breadth of style and
approach undertaken by East German directors. The exhibit both complements
the film series and stands as an artistic statement in its own right.
exhibit consists of fifteen panels. Each panel is 2.5 feet wide by 3.5 feet
high. The first two feature introductory materials, including a letter from
Prof. Barton Byg, Director of the DEFA Film Library, and a letter from the
exhibit curator, Elke Schieber of the Filmmuseum Potsdam). The remaining
thirteen panels are devoted to each of the film titles included in the
Shadows and Sojourners
film panel has 6 to 7 images, often black & white, but the newer films feature
color images. Each image is approximately 8 inches by 10 inches. Most of
the images are film stills, but several production photographs are included
as well. Each film panel also has a text with interesting information about
the film in question and a listing of production personnel. The texts are
not plot summaries, rather supply supplementary information regarding the
films' production histories.
