due to an overlap with 2 German classes, we have to reschedule the screening of IM JULI. Please excuse the short notice and come back in a few weeks for IM JULI. Tomorrow night, we will be showing another great German movie called GOOD BYE LENIN, a 2003 tragicomedy by Wolfgang Becker.
Here’s the trailer
East Germany, the year 1989: A young man protests against the regime. His mother watches the police arresting him and suffers a heart attack. When she wakes from her coma eight months later, the world has changed. The Berlin Wall has come down and the GDR does not exist any more. Knowing about her devotion to the Socialist Eastern German state and trying to prevent her from having another shock, her son sets up the GDR for her in their apartment.
