CineFest 2007
4th International Festival of German Film Heritage
Hamburg: 17 - 25 November 2007

Film in the heart of Europe
German-Czech Film Relations in the 20th century

Shooting of "Der Student von Prag" (1926, Henrik Galeen))

German, Austrian and Czech cultures share an intensive and problematic history. Two World Wars led to drastic changes and cultural conflicts which had a continuous effect on the countries’ relations with each other. Nowhere are the ever-changing developments and various facets of these precarious relations more explicitly projected than in film.
