Now in its 23rd year, Washington’s leading German-language film event presents a weeklong glimpse into the trends and film cultures in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The lineup will include award winners such as German director Sebastian Schipper’s acclaimed drama Victoria, shot in a single take, recipient of six Lolas at this year’s German Film Awards. Youth culture will be the focus of several films, including the Berlin-set Who Am I (Who Am I – Kein System ist sicher), which transforms the hotly-debated topic of internet hacking into a gripping cyber thriller, and the suspense and smoke-filled The Drift (Driften) by Swiss director Karim Patwa. Together with seven additional films, this week of new German films is a not-to-be-missed favorite in Washington’s cultural scene.

Independent film critic and programming consultant Eddie Cockrell will once again join us for Film|Neu.
