Wars do not end when the fighting stops. Berlin-based film historian Dr. Philipp Stiasny, editor of the journal Filmblatt and author of the award-winning book, Das Kino und der Krieg. Deutschland 1914-1929 (“Cinema and War: Germany 1924-1929”), examines how the wounds and memories of the “Great War” continued to fester not primarily in the form of combat movies but as a subtext in melodramas, thrillers, and vampire films of the 1920s and 1930s.
The presentation at this CHI “Salon” is co-sponsored by the Department of German, the Eastman Fund, the Lamont Fund, the European Studies Program, and the Film and Media Studies Program.
