Wolf news and weekly programme June 22

Dear Wolfgang,

We finally have proper benches in front of Wolf's windows, come by and test them! They're coming in handy for all our new lunch guests who are enjoying Machiko's wonderful Japanese dishes. Come by every weekday between 12 and 3pm (and find this week's menu here)!

Athina Rachel Tsangari was here for a film talk with Ulrich Köhler last night and our wolf den was bursting at the seams with what felt like half of Berlin's film making scene which made us very happy.
Julian Radlmaier was there as well for an impromptu film talk with film students and will be back tonight for a double bill of his EIN PROLETARISCHES WINTERMÄRCHEN and SELF-CRITICISM OF A BOURGEOIS DOG.

And finally we are expecting a hotly anticipated visitor: novelist and filmmaker Helene Hegemann is going to present AXOLOTL OVERKILL on 27. June - a film that took Sundance by storm and a truly crazy, unexpected film adaptation that's not to be missed.

New this week for kids is the film HILFE, MEIN LEHRER IST EIN FROSCH (in the German version) and for everyone else there's LIFE, ANIMATED (English with German subtitles) and the Neukölln documentary ACT! WER BIN ICH (in German).

See you soon & Awooooo
