Hommage Oliver Storz

IM SCHATTEN DER MACHT opens this year’s International Film and Television Festival Cologne Conference 2003. The parable of contemporary history concerns the Günter Guillaume espionage affair which led to the resignation of Chancellor Willy Brandt. This screening provides a fitting occasion to dedicate this year’s retrospective to the work of screenplay author and director Oliver Storz. Winner of numerous awards, Storz is rightly regarded as one of the great creative forces in German television history.
