In memory of the 100th anniversary of the death of Rosa Luxemburg, a universal historical figure, the Atalaya Club has scheduled the screening of "Rosa Luxemburg" for Friday the 18th at 7:00 p.m.
Rosa Luxemburg, known as "The Red Rose" is considered one of the great revolutionaries of the 20th century and one of the founders of democratic socialism.
Pacifist pioneer in using the expression "Socialism or Barbarism", led the protests of left-wing socialists against the First World War.
On January 15, 1019, she was savagely murdered along with Karl Liebknecht in Berlin, for proclaiming the workers' struggle, universal suffrage and an alternative to the capitalist system.
Franz Mehring, Marx's biographer, did not exaggerate when he called Rosa the best brain after Marx.
But she not only brought her brain to the movement of the working class: she gave everything she had - her heart, her passion, her strong will, her life itself.
His best known works are Reformation or Revolution (1900), Strike of masses, party and union (1906), The Accumulation of Capital (1913) and The Russian Revolution (1918).
The film "Rosa Luxemburg" directed by Margarethe von Trotta, 1986, in the original subtitled version is screened this Friday, the 18th, at 7:00 pm at Club Atalaya.
With great historical rigor, he narrates a portrait of the socialist leader, from the late nineteenth century until his death in 1919. The four-part script and prologue presents Rosa during prison in Wronke, in 1917. The first part recedes at the end of last century and beginning of the current one.
Rosa Luxemburg is at the beginning of her career as a journalist on political issues and a member of the socialist party.
More than professional success, she wants to be a woman next to Leo Jogiches, her lover and fight partner.
After a brief stay in Warsaw, where Rosa goes to lend her support to the first Russian Revolution, she is arrested and imprisoned for this reason, until the comrades of the German Socialist Party get their ransom.
In 1906, he returns to Berlin.
As of that moment, its history is narrated in chronological form until its murder the 15 of January of 1916. This historical information about the revolutionary Rosa Luxemburg constitutes an important part in the film.
But just as important is the description of this woman's world.
