    Berbet Schroeder in Conversation on Walter Benjamin, R. Housemann, Pink Floyd.

    Hausmann actually had a whole colony of other German intellectuals, poets, painters. And this house [in Amnesia] was influenced by Hausmann, it was not built by him. But it was influenced by him and his group. It was built in 1936 and my mother bought it in 1951.
    AKT: Was Walter Benjamin part of that group around Raoul Hausmann?
    BS: Yes, he was! Walter Benjamin was actually not far from this house. He was in the fishermen village that was 15 minutes by foot from this house.

    “It is the element of adventure in all creative activity that particularly interests Schroeder. He is a producer, a catalyst, but also a director and an actor. He is a Renaissance man. He began as a critic for Cahiers du Cinema. He gives his all to each film. When he produced La Collectuionneuse, he wento into debt to do so. He was the first to believe in Rohmer.” wrote Nestor Almendros (A Man with a Camera).

    From Barbet Schroeder’s first film “More” Nestor Almendros was his D.P and also credited as set designer in some films, their collaboration continued to “The Valley, “Obscured by Clouds”, “General Idi Amin Dada”, “Maitresse”, “Koko, the Talking Gorilla”
