Ingemo Engström’s graduation film DARK SPRING (West Germany 1970) was made at the Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film in Munich, where she began studying in 1967. After the premiere at a festival in Mannheim, Uwe Nettelbeck wrote in “Filmkritik”: “Films like DARK SPRING […] do not translate into the language of those who immediately think they know what such films are about […] But more, DARK SPRING is the film of a woman and a women’s film in which women say something, namely: how they see things.” Harun Farocki saw the film in 1971 at the Hamburger Filmschau. In the succeeding years, he worked closely with Engström; they made the 1975 film “Erzählen” (Telling) together. We have not yet seen DARK SPRING, which is why we are screening it.
