Film Library

Tutt Library houses many German films on VHS and DVD. These are available for checkout to students and employees, many have subtitles. The film collection of the CC German Program was begun in the early 1980s by Professor Armin Wishard and contains well over 3000 German language videos for viewing on campus for the CC community. The entire collection is housed in the German Department in Armstrong Hall. The format varies from US-NTSC to German PAL and DVD(regions 1 and 2). Other films are kept in Tutt Library and are generally on the American NTSC system with subtitles.

The collection is extremely diverse, containing documentaries, feature films, television series, operas, enactments of great literature, recordings of stage productions, rare films, a significant number of films from the Nazi and the GDR era, as well as the most recent films. All the silent classics by Pabst, Murnau, and Lang are available, including the complete collections of German television programs such as 'Berlin Alexanderplatz' and 'Heimat.' Gay, lesbian, and women filmmakers are also well represented, including most works by Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Doris Dörrie.
