Der andere Blick

The Other Eye

This essay explores the strange case of G. W. Pabst, the Austrian filmmaker who was considered a giant of early cinema before his reputation went behind a cloud. What possessed this liberal, cosmopolitan filmmaker to return to Austria in 1939 and direct movies for the Third Republic?
