Previously profiled on S&A, it made its world premiere in the Panorama Documentary section at the Berlin Film Festival in February, and now Dagmar Shultz's Audre Lorde - The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 - an untold chapt at theIt was announced today ther (the Berlin years) of the late writer, poet and activist, Caribbean child of immigrants from Grenada, who died rather young at 58 years old in 1992 - is scheduled to make its theatrical premiere next week Monday, March 26th, at 7:30 courtesy of Third World Newsreel, who acquired the 84-minute film and will premiere it at The Brecht Forum in New York City; no word on where it'll play after that.

But it'll be out on DVD sometime this spring.

Specifically, the film will focus on...

Audre Lorde's years in Berlin in which she catalyzed the first movement of Black Germans to claim their identity as Afro-Germans with pride. As she was inspiring Afro-Germans she was also encouraging the White German feminists to look at their own racism

The film will serve as a historical document for future generations of Germans, which profiles and highlights, from the roots, the African presence in Germany, and the origins of the anti-racist movement before and after the German reunification, as well as facillitates an analysis and an understanding of present debates on identity and racism in Germany.

The film can be considered a companion piece to the1994 documentary A Litany for Survival: The Life and Work of Audre Lorde by Ada Gray Griffin and Michelle Parkerson, which also screened at the Berlin Film Festival.

Head over to the Brecht Forum website (HERE) for details on tickets, which I'm assuming will go fast. I plan to be there.
