Shadows and Sojourners: Images of Jews and Antifascism in East German Film
Touring Film Series

Photo Exhibit - Click on a thumbnail to enlarge picture


Shadows and Sojourners

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.

The 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 series.

Each 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.

Pricing of the exhibit for a one month installation is $500 not including shipping. Price and length of exhibit time is negotiable.
