The Filminitiative Würzburg is thrilled that the filmmaker, Edgar Reitz, has agreed to come. The 84-year-old, known for his film series entitled "Heimat", has been in the film industry since 1953. He was one of the protagonists of the "New German Film" (Neuer Deutscher Film) in the early 1960s. We have organized a retrospective to honor Reitz, "Dedication to the Moment - Homage to the Filmmaker Edgar Reitz" (Hingabe an den Augenblick – eine Hommage an den Filmemacher Edgar Reitz”), that features a selection of his early short and long films. Edgar Reitz will be available for a panel discussion.

The following films will be screened in the retrospective:
„Die Kinder“ und „Mahlzeiten“
„Kommunikation – Technik der Verständigung“ und „Die Reise nach Wien“
„Geschwindigkeit – Kino 1“ und „Die Stunde Null“
„Heimat-Fragmente: Die Frauen“
