The Berlin school : films from the Berliner schule by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The informal movement that critics like to call the Berlin School," as director Christoph Hochhäusler puts it, is a loose affiliation of filmmakers who emerged around the time the Berlin Wall fell. The founding figures--Thomas Arslan, Christian Petzold, and Angela Schanelec--and their younger colleagues are not bound by a manifesto or by any singular aesthetic. Nonetheless, their observant portrayals of characters in flux offer a compelling cinematic expression of the search for new identities in a time of societal change. The films of the Berlin School have resonated profoundly since the mid-1990s, making it one of the most influential auteur movements to emerge from Europe in the new millennium

Dreileben ein Ort, drei Schicksale, drei Filme ( Visual )

"One of the most talked-about world-premieres at this year's Berlinale, Dreileben was also one of the longest: a triple-bill of 90-minute German TV-movies running a total of five-and-a-half hours (with intermissions). Named after a fictional rural area in the east of the country where each of the films takes place, the project arose from e-mail discussions between a trio of respected German writer-directors, Christian Petzold, Dominik Graf and Christoph Hochhäusler. The result is three separate though linked takes on the same manhunt story. Johannes is a happy-go-lucky teen working as an intern at a quiet countryside clinic and involved in an on-off courtship with Sarah, pretty daughter of the institution's chief surgeon. But when he meets Bosnian refugee Ana a more fiery romance quickly develops against the backdrop of a police-search for convicted murderer Molesch. Molesch escaped - with the hapless Johannes' inadvertent assistance - while 'visiting' with his deceased mother at the hospital's mortuary."--Dreileben: Film Review / by Neil Young 1:45 PM PDT 3/14/2011
