Dascha Dauenhauer wins European Film Award 2020

Congratulations to our speaker Dascha Dauenhauer for winning the European Film Award 2020 for "Berlin Alexanderplatz"!

"Often I read the news and I get very sad and feel powerless but in the next moment I remember that we, filmmakers, have the opportunity to make meaningful films and to put the pressure on - to fight against racism, to fight for gender equality, for the survival of our planet and everything else we have to fight for with the tools we have to hand," she says.
