Eva Geulen, Berlin; Rüdiger Campe, Yale; Anja Lemke, Cologne; Niklaus Largier, Berkeley

Department of German


Imagination, Phantasie und Einbildungskraft sind Begriffe, die sich auf ein Vermögen beziehen, dessen Status immer schon zwiespältig ist. Einerseits bildet die Produktivität der Imagination als Vorstellungskraft – neben dem Vermögen des Gedächtnisses und der Vernunft – eine Bedingung der Möglichkeit aller Erkenntnis und Abstraktion, andererseits ist sie in ihrer relativen Unabhängigkeit vom...   More >

What Have I Done to Deserve This?

Film - Feature | August 16 |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


An “ordinary” housewife navigates the usual working-class suburban life of deadbeat husbands, mad mothers-in-law, sex-worker neighbors, and child pandering in Almodóvar’s taboo-smashing send-up of the social realist drama, redone as crazed, John Waters–like comedy. Whether crushing her husband’s head with a ham bone, selling her youngest son to a dentist, or “helping out” the kindly dominatrix...   More >

Antonio Gaudí

Film - Feature | August 18 | 6:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí (1852–1926) designed some of the world’s most astonishing buildings, interiors, and parks; Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara (Woman in the Dunes) constructed some of the most aesthetically audacious films ever made. Here their artistry melds in a unique, enthralling cinematic experience, with a haunting score by Toru Takemitsu. Less a documentary than a visual...   More >

All About My Mother

Film - Feature | August 19 | 8:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Winner of the 1999 Cannes Best Director prize, this affectionate drama of a mother’s compassion serves as Almodóvar’s tribute to his two greatest inspirations: women and film. The tragic death of her son impels Manuela (Cecilia Roth) to find her long-missing husband, a trek that leads her across Madrid and Barcelona, and into the path of several women and men (and men who would be women) who need...   More >

Distant Voices, Still Lives

Film - Feature | August 20 | 5 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Liverpool has an unusual gravity. Witness Davies’s richly detailed portrait of working-class life and you’ll feel the extreme pull of the Liverpudlian past. It’s an homage to (and a forgiveness of) the daily trepidations of growing up in a brute household, ruled over by a stern father (the grand Pete Postlethwaite) and a doting mum (Freda Dowie). But Davies also finds strange comfort in this...   More >



Obit.

Film - Documentary | August 20 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


It’s no surprise that the small team of journalists on the obituaries desk at the New York Times are a thoughtful group and make for excellent subjects in this witty and illuminating documentary. Filmmaker Vanessa Gould conceived of the subject for Obit. after being interviewed by a staff writer at the Times following the death of a friend. Her film sheds light on how deaths are covered by the...   More >
