Theme: Germany 30 – The 30th Anniversary of German Reunification
Looking back – and also forward after 30 years. For today we chose a film that suits the topic best, at least according to our opinion….!
YES – IT WAS “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. And we are celebrating a double anniversary today! Why?Because it is the 5th Brisbane German Week this year and it has been 1 year since the launch of BGKC at the Elizabeth Picture Theatre in 2019!
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!
