Lotte H. Eisner (1896 – 1983) was one of the most fascinating figures of the past century. Not well known to the general public, the author of the celebrated essay L’écran démoniaque (The Demonic Screen) and curator in chief of the Cinémathèque Française was admired by Fritz Lang, Murnau, Stroheim, Sternberg, Chaplin, and Renoir, but also by Brecht, Man Ray, and, later, Herzog and Wenders, Godard and Truffaut. Hunted down by the Nazis, living as a refugee in France, Eisner was an eternal exile. A look at how the history of the twentieth century, the history of film, and the life of a woman were forever intertwined.
