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 22 @ 7:00 p.m.
Dir. Christian Petzold, 88 min., 2007, digital, German with English subtitles
Yella wants to leave the life she has led behind her. She meets a man working in the venture capital world and becomes his assistant. But time and again fragments of her past force their way into her new life.
