Matinee with Hanna Schygulla
Reading from „Du … Augen wie Sterne“

As part of the traditional goEast Sunday-matinee, international film and theatre-star Hanna Schygulla will be our guest on April 10 at 11 a.m. at the Caligari FilmBühne. Hanna Schygulla will introduce her new book „Du ... Augen wie Sterne“ (“You … Eyes Like Stars”), which was published by Schirmer/Mosel. The book is an homage – with texts, film-stills and photographs by Schygulla’s friends and colleagues. It includes contributions by Peter Handke, Elfriede Jelinek, Volker Schlöndorff, Margarete von Trotta, Fatih Akin and many others. The book contains numerous stills from Schygulla’s films and pictures by famous photographers like Helmut Newton, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Lilian Birnbaum, Peter Lindbergh, Cindy Sherman and others. Hanna Schygulla has written texts about Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Marco Ferreri, Gisèle Freund and other artistic companions she worked with during the course of her career – giving the book an autobiographical dimension. One text is dedicated to her collaboration with renowned Polish director Andrzej Wajda, with whom she made A LOVE IN GERMANY (1983). The film will be shown following the matinee.
Hanna Schygulla was born 1943 in Upper Silesian Katowice. From 1964 on, she studied German and Romance languages and literature in Munich. At the same time, she attended acting-classes, did theatre and met Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who made her his principal actress. After her worldwide success with Fassbinders masterpiece LILI MARLEEN in 1981, Hanna Schygulla worked with renowned directors like Volker Schlöndorff, Jean-Luc Godard and Andrzej Wajda. Today, she lives in Paris and near Munich. She can often be seen on the stage, performing chansons – with lyrics by Peter Handke, Heiner Müller, Thomas Bernhard, Arthur Rimbaud and Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

Caligari: 10.04. / 11.00 a.m.
