BERLINALE SELECTION 2019 – Der Junge muss an die frische Luft (All about me)
November 14, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EET
A new film series by the Goethe-Institut Cyprus
With the “Berlinale Selection 2019” taking place from 5th to 30th November, the Goethe-Institut Cyprus is launching a new film series presenting a selection of the best German language films from the most prestigious German film festival – the Berlinale. The film series gives the opportunity to audiences in Cyprus to get to know the best works in German contemporary cinema, with a focus on current winners of this German film award.
The programme includes new works of well-known filmmakers such as Caroline Link (Oscar winner) and Andreas Dresen, as well as exciting film debuts by David Nawrath and Nora Fingscheidt, who won a Silver Bear with her debut film “System crasher”.
In line with the festival motto of 2019 “the private is political“, the Goethe-Institut Cyprus is showing five films, which show in a suspenseful, dramatic or tragicomical way how people come to terms with their personal destiny and how much political and private influence one another. Questions, that are not limited to the German everyday life.
“All about me” (“Der Junge muss an die frische Luft”) tells the childhood story of famous German comedian Hape Kerkeling, who, despite his gift of humour, fails to help his mother in her depression. Young actor Julius Weckauf, who received the Young Actors Award for his performance, brilliantly portrays him. Caroline Link received the Bavarian Film Prize
