A collaboration between Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival / Black Box teater and Litteraturhuset / The House of Literature.
We welcome you to join us for a digital screening of Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 by Dagmar Schultz. This documentary film focuses on Audre Lorde’s relation to the German Black Diaspora, her literary as well as political influence, and is a unique visual document about the times the author spent in Germany. The film is also for coming generations a valuable historical document of German history, which tells about the development of an Afro-German movement and the origins of the anti-racist movement before and after the German reunification.
This digital film screening is presented as part of So many silences to be broken – a seminar on Audre Lorde, and in collaboration between Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival / Black Box teater and Litteraturhuset / The House of Literature.
