Lotte Eisner (1896 Berlin -1983 Paris) was an institution of German and French 20th century cinema, both in silent-era Berlin and in Paris after the war. The filmed biography presents the stages in Lotte Eisner’s eventful life. Starting from her place of refuge in Figeac, a small French village where Henri Langlois housed his film collection during the war, the documentary highlights Eisner’s work as a film critic in Berlin in the 1920s, her emigration to France and her work as chief curator at the Cinémathèque Française, which was her spiritual home until the end of her life.
