Lorde - The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992
Watch the entire
on the Reel Sisters' site
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. ~ read
the rest of Elizabeth Lorde-Rollins' thoughts on the film
year has passed since Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 had it’s world
premier at the Berlinale.
Since then film has screened at over 50 festivals, and many other venues,
worldwide, including conferences in Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
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!”

…The screening was really interesting for all of us (there
were 140 persons approximately). People told that the documentary was very emotive and at
the same time very rigorous, with a very interesting information about Audre's feminism.
Many people were not knowing the Audre's work in Germany, we only know of her as a poet,
but her work, her feminism, was amazing. We cannot explain with my rudimentary English, but
we think your documentary was the best in our Festival. We are very very happy, congratulations
one more time! More comments…
