Lorde - The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992
“My mother’s time in Berlin was very important to her, and I’m so glad that Dr. Dagmar
Schultz and her team have created Audre Lorde: the Berlin Years to serve as not only
a living record of that time, but also an inspiration. The film inspires me—as a cancer survivor, as
an African-American woman of mixed race, and as a physician—not to be satisfied with what is, but to
continue to work in service of my vision.” ~ Elizabeth Lorde-Rollins

of the film's travels!
years have passed since Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 had it’s world
premier at the Berlinale.
Since then film has screened at over 50 festivals, and
many other venues, worldwide, including conferences in Switzerland, the United Kingdom
and the United States.
I wanted to tell you that the special features of your film about Audre Lorde moved me a lot. One understands
her position toward her poetic work and above all the perspective which she has gained after all those
years. It truly is a gift to listen to her talking about it. Therefore I find this extra material of
your film very important!” ~
Presente en La Habana, Cuba
The screening of AUDRE LORDE - THE BERLIN YEARS in Havanna on December 21 was a
full success. There were about 50 persons present. The room is dedicated to the ballet dancer Alicia
Alonso and is decorated with beautiful drawings and paintings of her. We gave a short introduction
to the time period and the content. People watched the film very attentively and with great interest.
The comments and the discussion after the screening showed that the viewers were very moved and also
very grateful that we presented the film. ~ Warm greetings: Sandra & Esmeralda More comments…
