Asta Nielsen – Europas erste Filmikone

The documentary “Asta Nielsen – Europe’s first film icon” can be seen on ARTE, for the scenic parts of which costume designer Ellen Hoffmann borrowed original pieces from our collection. The Danish actress Asta Nielsen (1881 – 1972) was Europe’s first film star and created the cinema as we know it today. In more than 60 productions she always played conflicted and modern women. Her career ended with the talkies. She remained an icon of the silent film. To the documentationDokumentation:
