German Screen Studies Network: An Evening with Katja Riemann

Edmond J Safra Theatre, King’s College London King’s Building, The Strand

The German Screen Studies Network, in cooperation with the German Embassy London and the Greater London German Network, is delighted to announce a film screening and Q & A with celebrated German actress Katja Riemann. Since her 1993 film breakthrough with Abgeschminkt! (Making Up!), Riemann has starred in a string of German box-office hits including Der bewegte Mann (The Most Desired Man, 1994), Türkisch für Anfänger (Turkish for Beginners, 2012), and the controversial Fack ju Göhte (Suck Me Shakespeer, 2013). She has also gained recognition for challenging roles in historical, political and social drama, including in several collaborations with director Margarathe von Trotta: Rosenstraße (2003), Ich bin die Andere (I am the Other Woman, 2006) and Die abhandene Welt (The Misplaced World, 2015). In London for two performances of human rights lawyer Philippe Sands’ reflection on modern justice and the Nuremberg Trials, A Song of Good and Evil (King’s Place, May 16 & 18), Katja Riemann is in conversation at King’s following a screening of the 2012 political drama Das Wochenende (The Weekend). The screening is introduced by Dr Verena von Eicken (Falmouth University), and followed by a Q&A with Professor Erica Carter (King’s College London). The event (in English) is free, but booking is essential via: germanscreenstudies.co.uk/events
