… I heard of Audre before, here in Berlin she has often been my only company. During my first nights I read from Zami until sun came out. Then I would call my mother, loving her in Audre’s words. Like Audre’s work, your film is an acknowledgement of the women who keep us alive, and who lead us home. Thank you for allowing me to sit in the presence of Audre, and for introducing me to the words of May Ayim.”

I just wanted to let you know that the screening on Wednesday (Sept. 20) was a roaring success! We were anticipating that the students would be inspired and awed by the film, but the response was so much better than we ever could have expected! … ”

With 74 festivals and hundreds of screenings by 2018 the film has received enthusiastic responses around the world.... There is expanding interest in the film. We hope that the film will also reach schools. For that reason Marion Kraft designed the Study Guide, which can be found (also in German) on the Audre Lorde - The Berlin Years 1984 -1992 web site!

Audre Lorde Berlin City TourThe digital Audre Lorde in Berlin Online Journey is particularly suited for teaching, since you can choose particular locations to introduce discussions on Audre Lorde and her work, on German politics, Black Germans, antisemitism and racism in German, on (white) feminism and on the challenges of the 80s and early 90s which we still face today."
