Biography

Slatan Dudow was born in 1903 in Bulgaria and died in 1963 in Berlin, where he studied Theater from 1925-1926. He worked with Leopold Jessner and Juergen Fehling, was a chorus member under E. Piscator, but it was a trip to Moscow, where he met Majakowski and Eisenstein, that proved to be the most influential to his career. After his return from Moscow, he directed Brecht"s theater piece "Die Massnahme", while at the same time beginning work on his film career. He was commissioned to produce the film "Wie der Berliner Arbeiter wohnt" (1929) as part of the documentary series "Wie lebt der Berliner Arbeiter". "To Whom Does The World Belong?" ("Kuhle Wampe", 1932) was originally banned because it was apparently an insult to the Reich"s president, the judiciary and religion. After 1933, he was arrested several times and imprisoned in 1939, escaping in the same year to Switzerland. In 1946, he returned to Berlin and worked as a director at the DEFA studios. His films include: "Seifenblasen" (1934), "Unser taeglich Brot" (1949), "Frauenschicksale" (1952), "Staerker als die Nacht" (1954), "Der Hauptmann von Koeln" (1956), "Mit Verwirrung der Liebe" (1959), among others.
