In 1992 our New German Cinema collection were significantly extended when Volker Schlöndorff transfered all the existing documentation relating to his films to our archive. Alongside his private archive, documents relating to the Munich-based film company Bioskop Film supplement this extensive collection. Research materials, notebooks, screenplays in various versions, costings, shooting scripts, production diaries, storyboards, shooting and mixing plans, correspondence, content photographs, work photographs, stills, production photographs, posters, props, awards and certificates provide not only an overview of more than fifty years of Schlöndorff’s work as a director, but also allow for an insight into how filmmaking changed during this period. The collection is continuously being supplemented with additional documentation relating to Schlöndorff‘s current films and as a result always contains the most up-to-date material.
