• Here’s a quick birthday shout-out to Academy Award–winning, New German Cinema trailblazing Volker Schlöndorff, who turns seventy today. The tireless Schlöndorff is reportedly celebrating in (his) style: he’s currently on a reading tour through Germany, promoting his new autobiography, Light, Shadow and Movement: My Life and My Films (published in German by Carl Hanser Verlag). We’ll raise a glass to you in New York!

    Happy Birthday 70th Volker! I hope the book is published in English. I'd love to read it. Thanks Criterion for your wonderful work. I've recently bought the Agnes Varda and Eric Rohmer boxsets. Superbly done. All the best Ian
