JULIA FRANCK

Daniela Schmidt-Langels’ portray of one of the most important representatives of German literature today has been awarded the JULIANE BARTEL MEDIEN AWARD. The Jury said: „The film not only shows important moments of her life – it also tells almost casually a piece of East-West German History and gives the audience an understanding of the life situation in those two worlds at the time.” The award which is granted by the Ministry of Social Affairs of Lower Saxony recognizes the creative debate of the filmmaker on how women and their life situation is reflected in the media today.
