April 21: Film screening and Q&A - Rosehill by Brigitta Wagner


On Friday April 21, 2017 Bard College Berlin has the pleasure to welcome filmmaker and film historian Brigitta Wagner for a screening of her film Rosehill (2015), followed by a discussion with the audience. 

An emotional coming-of-age tale of geology and erotica, of natural resources and urban architecture, of crisis and metamorphosis, of friendship and love, Rosehill is a meditation on people in places and the way lives collide and change course. Part fiction, part documentary, part scripted, part improvised, Rosehill itself is the journey.

Dr. Brigitta Wagner is a film historian and filmmaker. After completing her B.A. at Dartmouth College, she did her graduate work at the Freie Universität Berlin and Harvard University, where she earned her A.M and Ph.D. in German and Film and Visual Studies. From 2008-13 she worked as an assistant professor at Indiana University in Bloomington before accepting an Alexander-von- Humboldt Fellowship in film and time-based media in Berlin. Wagner has taught at several institutions in Berlin, including NYU Berlin, Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule, and the MET Film School. She is the editor of the anthology DEFA after East Germany (Camden House, 2014) and the author of Berlin Replayed: Cinema and Urban Nostalgia in the Postwall Era (University of Minnesota Press, 2015). Her feature film Rosehill premiered in 2015.
