    In Autumn 1983 our KINO – German Film No:12 was a special issue, dedicated to BOSTON. A word of greeting wrote Dr. Gerhard Kirchhoff, Director of Goethe Institute Boston.

    Deac Rossell, the Museum Film Coordinator, wrote in New German Cinema: A Twenty-Year Retrospective:

    Many people contributed to making this series possible, especially critic Ronald Holloway, who selected the films, prepared the film notes, and worked on arrangements of films difficult to see in America. Dr. Gerhard Kirchhoff and Ms. Christine Kodis of the Goethe Institute Boston were stalwart in their support and hard work for the series. But, most of all, special thanks goes to all the filmmakers and producers in Munich and Berlin whose unanimous enthusiasm has made the arrangements for this retrospective a most pleasant task…

    The New German Cinema was represented by: Peter Schamoni, Franz Josef Spieker, Jean-Marie Straub, Alexander Kluge, Peter Fleischmann, Volker Schloendorff, Werner Herzog, George Moorse, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Uwe Brandner, Wim Wenders, Christian Ziewer, Robert Van Ackeren, Hans W. Geissendörfer, Klaus Kirschner, Reinhard Hauff, Wolfgang Petersen, Helke Sander, Niklaus Schilling, Peter F. Bringmann, Percy Adlon, Michael Hoffmann, Harry Raymon, Dieter Köster, Hannelore Conradsen, and  Robert Siodmak with Menschen am Sonntag (1929).

    On the back cover of KINO – German Film No: 12 is a photography of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. With Goethe Institut, Oktober Druck, German Films, and Gregor Sedlag I will discuss a reprint of KINO – German Film No: 12 from the year 1983.
