Professor Caryl Flinn Publishes New Essay on Werner Schroeter
Professor Caryl Flinn recently published an essay entitled, "Werner Schroeter's Exotic Music and Margins" in Werner Schroeter (Filmmuseum Synema Publikationen, 2018). This anthology is the first book-length study to appear in English on the German director Werner Schroeter (1945-2010). Flinn’s chapter examines Schroeter's films’ collagist soundtracks of previously existing music -- taken from high opera to tourist tunes pulled from trash cans (yes, literally). She argues that his scores both engage and challenge Germany’s exoticizing fascination with Latin and Mediterranean cultures.
