Pandoras Vermächtnis

Documentary Film, AT 2023, DCP, 87 min, OmeU

Georg Wilhelm Pabst is considered one of the most influential directors of the Weimar Republic. However, ruptures and contradictions in his life and work invite speculation even today. Angela Christlieb approaches this ambivalent figure via a family portrait spanning several generations. Letters and journal entries of his life and career partner Trude Pabst weave together with film clips, dream sequences, and the stories told by Pabst’s grandchild to a mosaic of power, gender relations, and family legacy.
