LIGHT ON CONTEMPORARY GERMAN CINEMA


ACHTUNG FILM! - the film series presented by the Goethe-Institut at the Cinéma du Parc - celebrates the richness and diversity of contemporary German cinema with fiction films, documentaries, and bold and entertaining productions by established and emerging directors.

This fall's program marks the 60th anniversary of the Goethe-Institut Montreal this year with two visually stunning and daring productions, such as the latest film by established director Dominic Graf (known for Beloved Sisters (Die geliebten Schwestern) and the television series In the Face of Crime (Im Angesicht des Verbrechens), who presents a film adaptation of Erich Kästner's autobiographical novel Fabian: The Story of a Moralist.
Fabian – Going to the Dogs tells the story of a Berlin youth in the 1930s on the precipice of authoritarianism. The film has, amongst others, been awarded Best German feature film in 2021.

This film will be followed by the dark comedy The Massacre of Anröchte (Das Massaker von Anröchte), which is director Hannah Dörr's first feature film, an absurdist detective story whose imagery and content are somewhat reminiscent of the cinematic language of Swedish director Roy Andersson.


All films will be presented at the Cinéma du Parc in the original German with English subtitles.
