Nowadays, Munich’s previously student-populated district of Maxvorstadt has become as sexy as a decaf soy cappuccino; for this reason, it should actually be torn down – were it not for Klaus Lemke. He keeps on scratching the surface of gentrification like an uninvited guest to a party, even at age 76. In MAKING JUDITH, he even co-stars a film, for the first time in decades.
The film portrays Munich the way it is, and Munich the way it could be; of course, it is also a film about film-making, as usual. Though Lemke still focuses on young people’s sexual neuroses, this work is also a melancholic tribute to old age as yet unseen in Lemke’s work. “Everybody wants to be someone else”, he says, – “so do I: I would also prefer to be the film rather than its director.” (David Steinitz)

In the presence of Klaus Lemke and Judith Paus.
