UMass Film Screening: Audre Lorde - The Berlin Years
UMass Herter 231
Q & A with director Dagmar Schultz
Audre Lorde - The Berlin Years (1984 to 1992) documents Audre Lorde's influence on the German political and cultural scene during a decade of profound social change, a decade that brought about the fall of the Berlin Wall and the re-unification of East and West Germany. The film chronicles an untold chapter of Lorde’s life: her empowerment of Afro-German women, as she challenged white women to acknowledge the significance of their white privilege and to deal with difference in constructive ways.
