Whether it’s a crime thriller, romance, early night series or literary film adaptation: Schleswig-Holstein (SH) is a popular filming location. And this for a very long time. A program in the State archives is now devoted to the SH film set.

Schleswig (dpa / lno) – “Country Doctor”, “Immenhof”, “Tatort” or “Nosferatu”: In Schleswig-Holstein, films and series keep repeating themselves.

As early as 1921, scenes from the horror film “Nosferatu” were shot in Lübeck, Lauenburg and Sylt under the direction of Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau. Since then, early-night movies and series have been shot again and again in the northernmost state. A new show in the Schleswig State Archives will illuminate 100 years of the Schleswig-Holstein film set from Thursday. The exhibition “Vacation spot – crime scene – filming location!” 100 Years of the Schleswig-Holstein Film Set ”should cover an arc from the creation of the films to their archiving for the future.

From photos to fan articles

According to the State Archives, the exhibition was made possible by the passion for the collection of photographer and author from Schleswig Kai Labrenz. He has been accompanying filming in Schleswig-Holstein with his camera since 1992. Labrenz has donated a large part of his collection to the State Archives. The archives announced that it was possible to fall back on a rich pool of photographs, press kits, props, posters and fan articles when designing the exhibition.

In addition, a diverse support program will provide further information about the “Film Land Schleswig-Holstein”. In addition to the lectures, there are reportedly film screenings in the state archives and at the Schleswig Capitol cinema. Those interested can also go in search of clues with the cinephile Labrenz and discover the filming locations. There are also guided tours through the exhibition
