“My mother’s time in Berlin was very important to her, and I’m so glad that Dr. Dagmar Schultz and her team have created Audre Lorde: the Berlin Years  to serve as not only a living record of that time, but also an inspiration. The film inspires me—as a cancer survivor, as an African-American woman of mixed race, and as a physician—not to be satisfied with what is, but to continue to work in service of my vision.” ~ Elizabeth Lorde-Rollins

Since Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 had its world premier at the Berlinale on 2012 the film has been shown by the Fall of 2014 at 62 film festivals worldwide and at way over 130 other venues, including events and conferences in e.g. Mexico, Cuba,  Ghana, Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegowina, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. *** NEW JOURNAL PAGE *** An ongoing account of the film's travels!

“Dear Dagmar,
I wanted to tell you that the special features of your film about Audre Lorde moved me a lot. One understands her position toward her poetic work and above all the perspective which she has gained after all those years. It truly is a gift to listen to her talking about it. Therefore I find this extra material of your film very important!” ~ Karen Michelsen, filmmaker
