|Munich Film School
The highlighted foreign film school of 1997 is the 30-year old Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film in Munich.
Wim Wenders is the most famous graduate of the school. We will see a diploma work made under his supervision. Die Brüder Skladanowsky (1995) tells about the Skladanowsky brothers from Berlin. They pioneered the film industry as much as the Lumière brothers or Thomas Edison did.
Rainer Werner Fassbinder has also had an influence on the Munich school, even though he did not study there. He acted in Bourbon Street Blues (1976), a student film supervised by Douglas Sirk, his great idol. It will be shown in Tampere as well. The hottest student to come from the school right now is Roland "Independence Day" Emmerich. Franzmann (1979) is an early work by him.
We naturally have Mika Kaurismäki's The Liar (1980), which won the Risto Jarva Prize in Tampere in 1981.
