Angela Skrimshire's "Appreciation of Edgar Reitz' Heimat Films" now published (January 19th 2009)
Dear HEIMAT-friends, many of you will remember Angela
Skrimshire, living on the Scottish island Colonsay, from her contributions to
the heimat123.net mailinglist-discussions of Heimat 3. Inspired initially by
participating in those discussions, Angela has more recently been working on an
essay, which she calls an "Appreciation” of the Trilogy . For that she has
watched all the HEIMAT films again, and reflected on her direct personal
experience and impressions of them.
Most of the following amateur translations were done by Angela Skrimshire (Isle of Colonsay, Scotland, UK), some of them in cooperation with Wolfgang Floitgraf (Boston, Massachusetts, USA). Thank you both so much for your efforts! Two further Interviews dealing with HEIMAT 3 are linked from ReineR Rustema's site www.heimat123.net.
