Nacked Animals: Three young people hugging each other Czar Film

'Perspektive Deutsches Kino'is a section of the Berlinale dedicated to young German filmmaking, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022. The Goethe-Institut has taken this as an opportunity to look back at the last 20 years of exciting, innovative and daring works by young German filmmakers. The result is "New Directions", an online film series featuring 20 films by a new generation of filmmakers who are not afraid to experiment and challenge the film world with ever new perspectives. The online film series is available from 13 March to 19 April on the Goethe on Demand platform.

In addition to the online series, you can watch four of these films at the Lighthouse Cinema in Wellington and Academy Cinema in Auckland. All four titles are debuts by female directors.
