Villa Aurora Alumnus Edward Berger Wins Big At 95th Oscars Awards


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – A film entitled, “All Quiet On The Western Front”, directed by Villa Aurora Alumnus, Edward Berger has won an astounding four Oscars at the 95th Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday.

The ceremony which was held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, is aimed honoring films released in 2022. This year’s edition of the event was televised in the U.S. by ABC and was produced by Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss.

Now a highly renowned interdisciplinary artist residence, Villa Aurora was the exile home of writer Lion Feuchtwanger and his wife and collaborator Marta, and a center for German and European exiles in Los Angeles.

The institution is a transatlantic bridge-builder, promoting intercultural exchange and enabling dialogue between the arts community in Los Angeles and its resident artists.

Villa Aurora celebrates the significant contribution German and European artists and intellectuals of the 1930s and 40s had on Southern California, and offer a variety of arts and cultural programs, including public lectures, concerts, screenings, and performance, carrying this contribution into the 21st century.

In addition to being recognized as Best International Feature, the film was acknowledged for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design.

Villa Aurora was honored to celebrate the nine nominations for “All Quiet On the Western Front” on Saturday in the presence of German Minister for Culture and the Media Claudia Roth MdB. Director Edward Berger, together with Nele Müller-Stöfen, was filmmaker-in residence at Villa Aurora in 2015, a time which he describes as formative in his development and career as a filmmaker.

Among the friends and guests of the Feuchtwangers was Erich Maria Remarque, author of the novel “All Quiet On The Western Front.”

In a statement by the Head of Fellowship Program at Villa Aurora, Friedel Schmoranzer, the organization expressed its joy and excitement over the phenomenal accomplishment of its alumnus at this year’s Oscars.

“We at Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House congratulate Edward Berger on this amazing success. We are immensely proud to have had the privilege of hosting Edward as a Villa Aurora Fellow and celebrate the impact of residency programs for the creative process”, the statement said.
