Throughout April the Thursday Film Screenings at Goethe pay tribute to the German film director, playwright and actor Fatih Akin.
On 11 April at 19.00 on screen will be Im Juli: one day in a hot summer a Mercedes races though an empty road in Bulgaria. While the driver hastily stops at the side of the road to free a dead body from the boot, a stranger, named Daniel, on his way to Istanbul, appears behind him out of nowhere and after a short argumentation, he takes a seat in the car driven by Isa, a Turk from Berlin, and tells her his story.
On 18 April on screen will be Solino, which tells the 20-year long story of the Amato family, who brought pizza and pasta from Italy to Duisburg, Germany’s Ruhr area in the West, in 1964 during the first immigration wave.
On 25 April on screen will be Soul Kitchen, which tells the story of the homonymous bistro, located in a former industrial building in Hamburg and is run by the German-Greek Zinos.
