Our Eyes Looking Through the Lens: Celebrating Female Directors.

Join us at the Ives Main Library every Friday at 2 pm for a free film screening! The theme for March 2024 is Our Eyes Looking Through the Lens: Celebrating Female Directors.

Rosa Luxemburg tells the story of the eponymous Polish socialist and Marxist who worked tirelessly in the service of revolution in early 20th century Poland and Germany. While Luxemburg campaigns for her beliefs, she is repeatedly imprisoned as she forms the Spartacist League offering a new vision for Germany. 

Director Margarethe von Trotta is a German director, actress, and screenwriter who has been the recipient of countless awards for her groundbreaking feminist films, such as the Venice Film Festival’s Golden Lion and two David di Donatello Awards. A voice of the New German Cinema movement, von Trotta rejects the label that her films are “woman’s film making” but challenges that she “should instead be seen as a filmmaker who is at once a woman as well as a director who examines the interior of the feminine personal as well as the exterior of the political.” Read more about Margarethe von Trotta’s career here.  

Rosa Luxemburg has a runtime of 2h 2m and is not rated.
