Cake & Fairytales
Location & Time: AGORA Rollberg - 12:00
Tickets available online here
In our Saturday noon talk “Cake&Fairytales” screenwriter Antonia Roeller will give us an introduction to how women are portrayed in fairytales and Rosa Negra Vegan Catering will add a sweet note to the event with some really delicious vegan cake.
Princesses are beautiful, jeopardized by their guilelessness and then saved by the man of their dreams. Gratefully they fall into his arms and live happily ever after… We’ve all heard the story.
But can this pattern still be found in the latest fairy tale adaptions? Which identification figures do they offer us? And what message do they convey on topics such as financial security, beauty, the image of the mother, the definition of the family overall and emancipation?
Screenwriter Antonia Roeller will analyse this with examples as MIRROR MIRROR, THE PRINCESS & THE FROG and FROZEN.
Antonia Roeller studied screenwriting at UCLA in Los Angeles. Now she works as writer and story consultant in Berlin. She teaches “Creating complex female characters for Film and TV” at Master School Drehbuch. Since 2015 she published two film essays: “Career-driven, power-hungry, lonely? The Portrayal of Female Leaders in Film and TV” and “The Princess awakens. Modern Fairytale Heroines in Film and TV”.
