"Schoog in Dialogue" is the name of the series created in 2023, in which Bernadette Schoog will invite prominent guests to talk to her in the Kurhaus four times a year. In each case, an exciting personality will be interviewed by Bernadette Schoog on stage exclusively in front of an audience about their life, visions, ideas, imprints, thoughts etc. An up-close, ninety-minute experience with a prominent person, an empathetic discussion leader - and all in a beautiful ambience.
Doris Dörrie is Bernadette Schoog's guest. To describe Doris Dörrie, you have to use a few superlatives: she is one of the best-known filmmakers we have in Germany. "Männer", the big breakthrough for her with Heiner Lauterbach and Uwe Ochsenknecht, marked the brilliant beginning of her international career in 1985. Numerous films - from "Bin ich schön?" (Am I beautiful?) to the wonderful tragicomedy "Kirschblüten-Hanami" (Cherry Blossom Hanami) - followed and also became successes for Doris Dörrie, who was born in Hanover in 1955 and has the distinctive blonde short haircut. Most recently, with "Freibad", she was able to present another cinema film that is light, humorous and yet socio-politically relevant. In addition, she teaches at the Munich Film Academy and gives writing courses because writing is so important to her as a reflection of many things. The likeable woman from Munich by choice is also very good at this, because she has also reached a large audience as a writer with her short stories, novels and children's books. She received the "German Book Prize" for "Das blaue Kleid" in 2003. She will talk to Bernadette Schoog about all this, as well as about her most recently published books ("Leben, schreiben, atmen" or "Die Heldin reist"), which have of course all become bestsellers again.
