Ottinger is a multimedia artist, one of the pioneers of exuberant queer cinema, and a master of mesmerizing travel documentaries that creatively combine ethnography and landscape photography with archival materials and theatrical elements. The Department of German partnered with the Pacific Film Archive in realizing this artist residency, so we can see a full series of her earlier and more recent films on the big screen in the beautiful Barbro Osher Theater (see link to schedule below).
Ulrike Ottinger will also give this year's Mosse Lecture on March 12 at 6:30 pm. She will present an illustrated talk discussing her approach to the visual design of her films, as well as her research methods for a nonfiction project like Chamissos Shadow, followed by a conversation with Professor Deniz Göktürk and the audience. The lecture is free and open to the public.
