Just in time for summer “The Miracle of Bern” will move us in the atmosphere of the “miraculous” summer in 1954, when Germany won the soccer world championship in Bern. The film by Sönke Wortmann was released in 2003. Besides the world championship it addresses the difficulties of a home coming prisoner of war and the relationship to his son. The film won among others the German Film Award in 2004.

The film will be shown in German with English subtitles. Afterwards there will be a moderated discussion.
This year Canada is commemorating its 150th anniversary. To celebrate, the Goethe-Institut will run a special program, “Germany @ Canada 2017 – Partners From Immigration to Innovation,” showcasing the close relationship between Germany and Canada.
Join us for an exciting edition of the Deutscher Filmklub all year long, where we will show our top 10 German film favourites from 1930-2015. From classics to contemporary movies, come for the screening and enjoy the discussion in German and English afterwards!
All films are in German with English subtitles. Free but space is limited, RSVP to library@toronto.goethe.org.
