German Cinema Now! "MADAME X" Screening
The monthly Goethe Pop Up Film Series GERMAN CINEMA NOW! supports artistic works that amplify the plurality of voices and experiences to inspire public dialogue. The film screenings take place in partnership with Northwest Film Forum.
MADAME X: EINE ABSOLUTE HERRSCHERIN | Madame X: An Absolute Ruler (1979), a rarely seen film by one of the most important German filmmakers since the 1970s and the winner of this year’s Berlinale Camera, Ulrike Ottinger. Ottinger (born 1942) works in film, photography, and the visual arts. MADAME X mirrors pirate film aesthetics told from a female perspective and stars a West-Berlin underground icon, Tabea Blumenschein, who passed away earlier this year. German with English subtitles.
