| ||Tonight the series of films about Berlin, accompanying the art exhibition “BERLIN & beyond”, will start at 7.00 pm in the hall of the Goethe-Institut with the film classic: “Berlin-symphony of a city” from 1927 by Walther Ruttmann, showing a normal day in the metropolis from dawn to dusk. All films are with English subtitles. Admission is free! |
We have changed the program of this film series on two days:
Friday 21st March 2014 7.00 pm: instead of “The murderers are among us” we will show: “Anonyma – a woman in Berlin” (D, 2007/08; 131 min.; dir. Max Färberbock; starring Nina Ross) Berlin, April 1945, the last days of the war. In a partially destroyed building, people cower in the basement – and wait. They have survived the night-time bombing raids and the artillery bombardments. Most of them are women, and they have a foreboding of what awaits them. The Red Army is poised to march in and take Berlin.
Tuesday 25th March 2014 7.00 pm: instead of “Nightshapes” we will show: “Eins, zwei, drei“ (One , two, three) (USA; 1961; 115 min.; dir. Billy Wilder; starring James Cagney, Horst Buchholz, Liselotte Pulver and many more.) “One, Two, Three” is a 1961 American comedy film directed by Billy Wilder. The film is primarily set in West Berlin during the Cold War, but before the construction of the Berlin Wall, and politics is predominant in the premise. The film is known for its quick pace.
