Machines of Desire: Female protagonists in the films of Christian Petzold and Nina Hoss

Supervised by: Dr Lucy Fife Donaldson and Professor Michael Cowan

My research is to look in depth at the role of the female protagonist in the films of Christian Petzold, focusing specifically on his collaborations with actress Nina Hoss. It will situate Petzold’s women in the contemporary filmmaking landscape but also in a wider historical tradition of European cinema.
