about

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 Hochhäusler, 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

Editorial Reviews

“Berlin School Glossary succeeds very well. Although anyone who has studied the Berlin School films in any depth may not be surprised by some of the observations on long takes, endings, boredom, and so on, these will certainly be enlightening to the cinephile or any student new to the topic; and there is enough quirkiness here, with entries on pools, Dorfdiskos, hotels, forests, and the near ubiquitous Berlin School actor Devid Striesow, to keep the interest of anyone with more substantial prior knowledge.”
