Last week we launched a preview of Tamer El Said's IN THE LAST DAYS OF THE CITY (Akher ayam el madina) together with Mobile Kino and the two screens of Neukölln's Griessmühle were completely packed! We are now looking forward to the film's official cinema release starting this Thursday. We are very excited about this big step, because Wolf was part of the production team and is releasing the film together with Arsenal - Institut f. Film- und Videokunst e.V. We believe in this film and want you to watch it a million times over :)
Tomorrow, director Tamer El Said will come by to speak about his film together with Stefanie Schulte Strathaus, who is part of the selection committee of Berlinale's Forum section and co-director of the Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art. The film starts at 7.30pm (with English subtitles), the discussion is in English.
We are showing IN THE LAST DAYS OF THE CITY twice daily (with English subtitles) and on Tuesday we're showing it for all fresh parents out there in our Baby Wolfgang strand (on that occasion with German subtitles).
And we have another new film in our programme this week: Emin Alper's (director of BEYOND THE HILL) ABLUKA: It's a film that shows Turkey to be a country full of distrust, a psychothriller in a society that has fallen into chaos, a genre film and political allegory in equal measures. We're delighted to have this film in our programme, for Emin Alper has a unique, biting ability to create visual allegories that hit the nerve of our times.
Good news for all of you who haven't seen ALL THESE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS: due to popular demand we're showing the film for one more week in our late night slot with English subtitles. Spread the word, grab that vodka bottle, skip clubbing for one night and sink into our cinema seat - this is the place to contemplate on your senseless escapism.
If you haven't seen Thomas Arslan's HELLE NÄCHTE - Bright Nights yet (German with English subtitles) you should definitely do so today: we're showing the film at 4.15 and 10.10pm for the last time.
Screening times for this week in the grey box above or, as always, at wolfberlin.org!
