Stefan Roloff

Stefan Roloff is an independent artist and filmmaker whose artwork and installations are shown worldwide in museums and galleries. In 1997 he began to work on his documentary film The Red Orchestra. The film is a portrait of his late father, Helmut Roloff, an anti-Nazi resistance hero. It was nominated for Best Foreign Film in 2005 by the Women Critics Circle. For the first time it told the true story of the “Red Orchestra,” a resistance group that was slandered during the cold war by secret services and historians as a Communist spy network. For this film, Roloff received a New York City Media Arts grant from the Jerome Foundation. He also wrote a book in German, Die Rote Kapelle (Ullstein, 2002). Photo: Eva Mueller
