Previously profiled on S&A, and scheduled to make its world premiere in the Panorama Documentary section is Dagmar Shultz's Audre Lorde - The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 - an untold chapter (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.

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The film will serve as a historical document for future generations of Germans, which profiles and highlights, from the roots, the African presence in Germany, and the origins of the anti-racist movement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.

It was announced today that Third World Newsreel has acquired the 84-minute film and will premiere at at The Brecht Forum in New York City on Monday, March 23rd; no word on where it'll play after that. But it'll be out on DVD sometime this spring.

A trailer for the film has also been released and it's embedded below (hopefully we can get a Berlin review after the film screens next week):
