What do I want to say, and how? Gesa Marten is one of Germany's most renowned film editors. She has worked on over 60 films including "Vom Ordnen der Dinge" (2013) or the long-term trilogy "Was lebst du? - Was du willst - Wo stehst du?" (2004-2012) as well as the feature films "Fräulein Stinnes fährt um die Welt" (2009) and "LowLights" (2010).

Her editing work has received numerous nominations and awards (German Television Award, German Directors of Photography Award, Filmplus Bild Kunst Schnitt Preis). Gesa Marten is a professor of film editing at Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF.

In the workshop, she offers participants an insight into her work as an editor and script consultant, taking as an example the documentary Seht mich verschwinden (FEMMEfille, 2015). Directed by Kiki Allgeier (edited by Gesa Marten), the film tells the story of Isabelle Caro, who caused a sensation in 2007 when she was photographed naked and weighing only 32 kilos by star photographer Oliviero Toscani for the No Anorexia Campaign launched by the Italian fashion label "Nolita".

Presented by Prof. Sandra Hacker.

In cooperation with the Master's degree programme in film at Dortmund University of Applied Sciences & Art.
