8th Annual GSA Film Series
German Studies Association conference
The Made in West/East Germany series continued at the 2011 GSA conference with a pair of "women's films" made in the 1970s: The All-Round Reduced Personality – ReduPers (FRG, 1977, dir. Helke Sander) and The Dove on the Roof (GDR/Germany, 1973/2010, dir. Iris Gusner).
Two other classics straddling the East/West border screened as part of the GSA Film Series as well: Toxi (FRG, 1952, dir. Robert A. Stemmle) and Stars (GDR/Bulgaria, 1959, dir. Konrad Wolf).
The Made in West/East Germany concept is a collaboration between the Goethe Institute Boston and the DEFA Film Library at UMass Amherst.
