Framing Lotte Reiniger
Hitchcock Cinema, Arts One, Queen Mary University of London Mile End Road London E1 4NS United Kingdom
Queen Mary University of London's Department of Film and the Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations would like to invite you to ‘Framing Lotte Reiniger’, an evening of talks with a film screening on Friday 8th December 2017.
Venue: Hitchcock Cinema at the Queen Mary campus in Mile End, London from 5.30-8.15pm. FREE but booking required.
Following on from the German Screen Studies Network ‘Living Pasts, Moving Present’ conference and related events in 2016, we have invited four scholars to Queen Mary to present their recent work on the pioneering German animator Lotte Reiniger.
The study of Reiniger’s work straddles a number of different academic disciplines (German Studies, Film and Animation Studies, Art History) and artistic movements (Silhouette Craft, Modernism, Shadow play, the Decorative, Folk Art). Our four speakers will reflect on their chosen frame or framework for approaching this important but neglected artist. ‘Framing Lotte Reiniger’ will showcase the diversity of research being conducted within the field, offering a platform for sharing ideas and helping to forge a network.
