Theme: Germany 30 – The 30th Anniversary of German Reunification
Looking back – and also forward after 30 years. Guess the film that suits the topic best, at least according to our opinion….?
YES, YOU WERE RIGHT – IT IS “GOOD BYE, LENIN!”
Brisbane German Kino Club (BGKC) is turning 1! Born as an initiative by the German Consulate in Brisbane we are excited to present as part of Brisbane German Week a special anniversary double screening of GOOD BYE, LENIN! (2003) – in German, with English subtitles. Double? Because it is the 5th Brisbane German Week and 1 year since the launch of BGKC!
This year we celebrate 30 years of German reunification. This screening takes us back to the year 1990 where a young man in Berlin tries to protect his fragile mother from a fatal shock after a long coma. He must keep her from learning that her beloved nation of East Germany as she knew it has disappeared!
