GFT Cinemasters: Margarethe Von Trotta

the lost honour of katherina blum

The first female director to win the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival, Margarethe von Trotta has made some of the most trailblazing films of the past five decades. One of the most gifted – but often overlooked – directors to come from the New German Cinema movement alongside Fassbinder and Herzog, von Trotta has never shied away from topics that resonate with contemporary lives and prompt revolutionary discussions. A pioneering feminist filmmaker, von Trotta’s films have tackled the power of mass media, historical events, radicalisation and women’s rights since the politically turbulent 1970s.
