We had a wonderful premiere of IN THE LAST DAYS OF THE CITY last week: and luckily part of the film team was there. Amélie Legrand, one of the film's composers, gave a beautiful and moving cello concert in our bar and we celebrated with many friends of the film.
Director Tamer El Said came back to Wolf and Klick Kino for extensive film talks that turned into beautiful evenings full of questions around filmmaking, Cairo, about the inter-connections of fiction and one's own life, about artistic processes and about the question of how to represent such a complex metropolis.
We are very happy about all the messages that many of you have already been sending the film! You can find them in print at our bar, or check out some of them on the film's Instagram page here.
Our highlight this week is an extensive workshop all around the making of IN THE LAST DAYS OF THE CITY this Sunday at silent green Kulturquartier in Berlin Wedding: An insight into the search for images and sounds that capture the soul of Cairo. You can see the film again or come after the screening for Tamer El Said's talk where he will share the story of the journey he took to make this film, which is marked by improvisation, doubts and vulnerability. Amélie Legrand and Victor Moïse, the film’s composers, will join him for an improvised session: They will create alternative music for the film. After the workshop we invite the participants to stay for a drink.
The screening starts at 11, the workshop at 2pm (everything is held in English), you can decide if you want to do both or just the workshop, and you can already get tickets in person at Wolf, or online here.
We're showing the film this week twice daily with English subtitles (and once with German). And for every one in the North of Berlin: Brotfabrik is now also showing the film!
In other cinema news, we're showing John Trengove's extremely accomplished THE WOUND (INXEBA) from tomorrow! Variety says: "John Trengove's hard-edged but beautifully wrought study of clashing Xhosa models of masculinity will be an eye-opener to outsiders — and some South Africans too." We're showing the film twice daily in Xhosa/Afrikaans/English with German subtitles.
Screening times for this week below or, as always, at wolfberlin.org!
