Petzold is joined by fellow filmmakers Benjamin Heisenberg (The Robber, Superegos) and Maren Ade (Everyone Else) to discuss their award-winning work in the context of the movement. Rajendra Roy, Chief Curator of Film at MoMA, who co-curated a programme of the Berlin School filmmakers in New York, will join them. In cooperation with Deutsche Kinemathek – Museum für Film und Fernsehen, Museum of Modern Art, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and Berlinale Panorama.
