MINDED YOUNG ACTRESS
femme totale is pleased to continue its programme of independent minded young actresses from the last Festival, the focus here, as the title suggests, on young actresses who accept unconventional roles away from TV mainstream and the cult of what passes for comedy. The actress in question is invited to attend the Festival, present a film of her choice and take part in a discussion with the audience.
In 1996, she issued
her first CD Noctambule with great success and followed this up with Nachtmahr
(Nightmare). Music is as important to her as acting. Her show Speak Low
- a declaration of love to Kurt Weill - marked the composer's 100th birthday.
So specially for the Kissproof lovefest in Dortmund this year, she has
revived the show along with a fine ensemble of musicians: Laszio Gulyas,
Peter Malay, Alexander Hacke, Claus Cordermann and German Marstatt. The
concert is presented by the CineStar Dortmund.
