Lecture by Susanne Marschall and screening

RED. A film installation in space is the name of the special exhibition, which can be seen at the Deutsches Filmmuseum until August 13. In the in-house cinema, film screenings as well as various lectures on the role of the colour red in film take up the theme of the exhibition. In March, Susanne Marschall explains how Michael Powell's and Emeric Pressburger's 1948 ballet film THE RED SHOES became an avant-garde work of art with the help of Technicolor, a color film technique. The audience then sees the classic on the big screen.
Lecture by Susanne Marschall: "An Artist's Film in Red"
THE RED SHOES Die roten Schuhe
Großbritannien 1948. R: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger
D: Moira Shearer, Anton Walbrook, Marius Goring. 135 min. 35mm. OF
The color red in all its variety of meanings and effects is at the center of the artist's film THE RED SHOES. The red that the painter Hein Heckroth conjured onto the canvas in various forms together with the directors Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and the cameraman Jack Cardiff owes its special quality to the color film process Technicolor. The lecture introduces the colour design of the famous ballet film, in which film, theatre, dance and painting find their way to an avant-garde synthesis of the arts.
