Abstract

In 1979, West German film culture had changed dramatically from the time of Oberhausen, with New German Cinema cresting on a wave of international successes. This manifesto reflects the solidarity and optimism on the part of West German filmmakers, while eliding some divisions: that most West German films were firmly ensconced in the narrative tradition, and that women were largely left out of the New German Cinema. The latter led to the “Manifesto of the Women Filmmakers” (see chap. 4 of this volume), released as a response to this manifesto.
