Goethe - BLOCKBUSTERS are back!
June 8 through July 13
In addition to our yearly festival of new German films GERMAN CURRENTS (look forward to this fall !) , we are bringing back BLOCKBUSTERS, showcasing favorites of ours, which had not seen the exposure they deserve.
From the hilariously funny WER FRUEHER STIRBT to David Kross’ (The Reader) debut film KNALLHART to Christian Petzold’s (The State I’m In, Wolfsburg) YELLA: “This year’s BLOCKBUSTERS, once again, present an exquisite mix of genres, high entertainment value and “invaluable samplers of some of the most innovative and thoughtful cinema coming out of Europe today” (L.A. Weekly)
Monday June 15 @ 7:00 p.m.
WER FRUEHER STIRBT IST LAENGER TOT (Grave Decisions)
Dir. Marcus Hausham Rosenmüller, 102 min., 2006, German with English subtitles
A little prankster tale, a typical Bavarian Lausbubengeschichte, set in 2006. A wonderful blend of depth and heartfelt emotion with an authentic sense for the little things that are important in life.
