Berlin School Glossary : An ABC of the New Wave in German Cinema Paperback / softback

Edited by Roger F. Cook, Lutz Koepnick, Kristin Kopp, Brad Prager


Berlin School Glossary is the first major publication to mark the increasing international importance of a group of contemporary German and Austrian filmmakers initially known by the name the Berlin School: Christian Petzold, Thomas Arslan, Christoph Hochhausler, Jessica Hausner, and others.

The study elaborates on the innovative strategies and formal techniques that distinguish these films, specifically questions of movement, space, spectatorship, representation, desire, location, and narrative.

Abandoning the usual format of essay-length analyses of individual films and directors, the volume is organized as an actual glossary with entries such as bad sex, cars, the cut, endings, familiar places, forests, ghosts, hotels, interiority, landscapes, siblings, surveillance, swimming pools, and wind.

This unique format combined with an informative introduction will be essential to scholars and fans of the German New Wave"
