The work of Bertolt Brecht has played a key role in the development of radical cinema, including the oeuvre of Straub and Huillet. We welcome academics Martin Brady, Ian Christie, Nicolas Helm-Grovas and Laura Mulvey for a roundtable discussion hosted by Erica Carter. They explore how Brecht's texts and concepts influenced both Straub-Huillet’s films and British cinema, plus the impact of Straub-Huillet‘s work on the British film culture in the 1970s, and their legacy today.

Organised in association with the German Screen Studies Network

Presented as part of The Films of Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet
