‘A Visual Tour Through German Literature’

Goethe-Institut runs new film series


The Goethe-Institut started the New Year with a new film series, which kicked off on January 7, and every Wednesday thereafter.

A Visual Tour Through German Literature features various film adaptations of various German literary works from the classics to German fairytales to contemporary literature. Many great exponents of German literature, from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to Erich Kaestner to Daniel Kehlmann, are represented in the film adaptations of our new film series. Just like the novels, many of these adaptations are already highly acclaimed in the German cultural scene.

The “Wednesday Movie Nights” are a permanent feature of the program work of the Goethe-Institut Philippinen. The screenings feature a wide range of German movies of various themes and issues. Admission is free and the film showings are open to public. It is part of the offer to our German learning students, as well.

The screenings takes place every Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Goethe-Institut Philippinen Library. Tonight, Fontane Effi Briest will be screened.

The succeeding schedule is as follows: January 28—Der Blaue Engel (The Blue Angel); February 4—Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer (The Flying Classroom); February 11—Nikolaikirche (Nikolai Church); February 18—Die Vermessung der Welt (Measuring the World); February 25—Der Turm Part 1, (The Tower); and March 4—Der Turm Part 2.
