German actress, film director, and screenwriter, Angela Schanelec will be in Buenos Aires this Thursday June 23rd, to personally present five of her films.

Encuentro con Angela Schanelec is part of the Mujeres detrás de la cámara series, and will premiere her most important works in Argentina. Schanelec has countless film credits under her belt, and is perhaps most well known for Orly (2010), Afternoon (2007), and Marseille (2004). She defines her style as paying particular attention to the daily lives of her characters: especially moments of self-reflection about the scope of their lives.

Thursday night’s lineup will kick off with a lecture titled Intimidad y distancia. Contar la vida en el cine: a dialogue with Argentine director Laura Citarella at 5:00 PM at the Universidad del Cine. Then her film Mi Vida Lenta (Mein langsames Leben; Germany, 2001) will have screenings both at 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM at the Cultural San Martín. There will also be more screenings and talks from Wednesday June 22nd – Friday, June 24th. The full list of events can be found here.

Whether you make it out to just the lecture, or both the lecture and the film: don’t miss your chance to meet the legendary director, and gain a little insight into what it takes to make it as a woman in this complicated industry.
