Lea and Daria

Director: Branko Ivanda.
LEA & DARIA is inspiring true story about two thirteen-year-old girls who were, on the eve of World War II, great dancing and acting stars in Zagreb. Selling out theatre venues, they were praised in the most superb headlines by the Croatian and European press. They were filmed by Parisian Pathe and Berlin’s UFA… During the Nazi persecution of Jews and the later German nationals’ flight from communists, a dramatic friendship was born through entertainment, dance, but also anxiety. This led towards an unexpected end.

The 60th Berlinale--Retrospektively Speaking

by Richard Traubner The Retrospektive at the Berlinale usually excites all types of film historians, curators, museum personnel, and other interested parties--especially when it's a German subject. This year, a restored version of Fritz Lang's 1927 Metropolis trumped the Retrospektive itself, which was a look-back at significant and sometimes controversial films shown at the film festival since it began in 1951--in far warmer June weather.     Many of these films...

Production Design Retrospective at the Berlinale

The theme of this year’s Retrospective at the Berlin Film Festival was Production Design from 1939 to the present.

But given the emphasis on the role of the production designer in current films, and, indeed, the work of living designers (some of whom attended the festiva...
