Recently selected Grand Prize Narrative Feature at the 5th Socially Relevant Film Festival (NYC), the award-winning German arthouse film, LOU ANDREAS-SALOMÉ, THE AUDACITY TO BE FREE, directed by Cordula Kablitz-Post, who won the NDR Newcomer Award (Internationales Filmfest, Germany) will open in theatres, starting April 20th in New York City at Village East Cinema, with Los Angeles and additional cities to follow.
The award-winning film shines a light on the trailblazing life of the world’s first female psychoanalyst, author, and protofeminist, Lou Andreas-Salomé (1861 – 1937), at a time when Hollywood is waking up to women’s successes.
“Lou was a myth even when she lived, and she deserves to be rediscovered today as the woman behind the myth,” says director Cordula Kablitz-Post.
The film was an Official Selection at the Tallgrass Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival, and Tbilisi Film Festival and was released by Wild Bunch in Germany, with successful theatrical runs in France and Brazil, with Spain and the U.S. upcoming. Cinema Libre Studio, handling North American rights, will release the film in select theatres following the festival.
