Join us on Zoom for a conversation with film and TV director/writer Edward Berger.

BAFTA and International Emmy-winning director Edward Berger is behind the critically-acclaimed film All Quiet on the Western Front, which was awarded 7 BAFTAs, including Best Direction and Adapted Screenplay, along with an outstanding 9 nominations and 4 awards at this year’s Oscars.

Edward Berger’s work includes Deutschland ’83The Terror and Patrick Melrose, which was heralded as one of the best television shows of 2018.

The event will be moderated by Dr Christiane Schönfeld, Associate Professor and Head of German Studies at Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, Ireland. Dr Schönfeld’s research on German-language literature and cinema focuses on a wide range of cultural representations and sheds light on their significance for the public sphere.

Among her publications are books and articles on literary and visual cultures from the 19th to the 21st century. Her most recent book — The History of German Literature on Film (Bloomsbury) — will be available on 27 July 2023.
