Peter Lorre Retrospective: Screening and discussion with Felix Hofmann, July 19, 2018, Zeughaus Kino, Berlin
Felix Hofmann Filmkritik author, and together with Harun Farocki, director of the TV feature PETER LORRE – DAS DOPPELTE GESICHT (The Double Face of Peter Lorre) (1984), will talk about the film on July 19 at 8:00 pm within the framework of the Peter Lorre Retrospective at the Zeughauskino in Berlin. A discovery from Farocki’s estate will also be shown.
During the inventorying of the archive at the Harun Farocki Institut we found a 16 mm working copy which features an interview with the actress Gisela Trowe conducted by Felix Hofmann. Trowe played the role of a prostitute in the film DER VERLORENE (The Lost One) (1951) (D: Peter Lorre). The interview was conducted in 1984 in her apartment in Hamburg. It was filmed by Farocki and Hofmann for the WDR feature PETER LORRE – DAS DOPPELTE GESICHT (The Double Face of Peter Lorre) (1984), however it is not contained in the final version of the feature. The working copy, which we have digitized*, will be screened for the first time publically within the framework of the film series “Das Gesicht hinter der Maske. Hommage an den Schauspieler Peter Lorre” (The Face Behind the Mask. Homage to the Actor Peter Lorre) at the German Historical Museum’s Zeughauskino in Berlin, together with the film PETER LORRE – DAS DOPPELTE GESICHT.
Guests: Felix Hofmann and Volker Pantenburg
