We are honored to be able to present the first American
screening of the archivally restored German version of
LOLA MONTES. The restorers of the film, Stefan Droessler,
Director of the Munich Film Museum, and Martina Mueller,
author of a new book on the film (Cologne 2002), will
introduce the screening.  Filmed in Eastmancolor and
Cinemascope, with four-track sound, and shot simultaneously
in three language versions (French, German and English),
LOLA MONTES (1955) is one of the masterpieces of twentieth-
century filmmaking. This print includes previously
unreleased footage!

Conference participants include Ophuls biographer Helmut Asper
and many important European and American film critics and theorists.
