In conjunction with the Paula Modersohn-Becker exhibition, the Neue Galerie New York presents a selection of films about creative, independent women by female directors.






Directed by Margarethe von Trotta (2012). In German; English subtitles. 110 min.

In 1961, German-American philosopher Hannah Arendt was sent by The New Yorker to cover Adolf Eichmann’s trial in Jerusalem, where he faced execution for crimes against humanity. Her report proposed “the banality of evil,” an expression which described the radical disparity between Eichmann’s underwhelming personality and the incalculable magnitude of his sins. German director Margarethe von Trotta’s film, Hannah Arendt, is a biographical portrait of its eponymous heroine, chronicling her formulation of that thesis and her experience of the context in which it was received.

Directed by Lea Glob (2022). In Danish and French; English subtitles. 115 min.

When Danish filmmaker Lea Glob first met Apolonia Sokol in 2009, she appeared to be leading a storybook life. The talented Apolonia was born in an underground theater group in Paris and grew up in an artist community--the ultimate bohemian life. In her 20s, she studied at the Beaux-Arts de Paris, one of the most prestigious art academies in Europe. Over the years, Lea kept returning to film Apolonia as she sought her place in the art world, grappling with the agonies and joys of womanhood, the relationships with others and her own body and creation. Thirteen years on, the two women continue to reflect on each other's paths in this mesmerizing film about art, love, motherhood, sexuality, representation and how to succeed in a world dominated by patriarchy, capitalism and war, without losing oneself.

Directed by Barbara Albert (2006). In German; English subtitles. 88 min.

Falling is a charming and intelligent human drama about five independent women, former classmates who have forged different lives since their school days, and who are reunited for the funeral of a beloved teacher. As the five women reconnect, a day of sober mourning turns into a night of sybaritic celebration. Nina, Brigitte, Alex, Carmen, Nicole and Daphne share secrets large and small while reopening wounds old and new. The reunion transforms into a journey, and the film becomes an impressionistic road movie that keenly chronicles contemporary women's lives by connecting the fragile emotional truth of youthful idealism with the stark facts of adult reality.
