German Cinema in the Crossroads
As part of the Year of German-American Friendship ("Wunderbar Together") we’re bringing German film to Kansas City. With our Pop Up Film Haus events we seek to bring together cinephiles, German speakers, and the uninitiated alike to discover German cinema through our curated selection of films. Each film will be shown with English subtitles and there will be an opportunity for discussion following each screening.
Goethe Pop Up Kansas City welcomes all to join us this week for a screening of Tom Tykwer’s film “Drei“.
Germany, 2010,119 minutes
By Tom Tykwer
with Devid Striesow, Sebastian Schipper, Sophie Rois
After twenty years together, their relationship has started to wear a little thin; Hanna and Simon seem to live more in the past than with belief in a shared future. Then they both fall in love with the same man, and neither is aware of the other’s sexual adventures. When the truth comes to light, the trio comes up with a surprising solution.
This event is part of the German Cinema in the Crossroads
film series, an extension of the Wunderbar: A Celebration of German Film
project. From Beloved Sisters
to A Coffee in Berlin
and Young Goethe in Love
, from The Blue Angel
to The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
– we are celebrating German-American friendship with our partner Kanopy by bringing 48 German films to your screens. Goethe-Instituts and Goethe Pop-Ups across the U.S. will take part in the celebration by showing films, organizing film festivals, and conducting discussions after screenings.
Please note: This film contains strong sexual content, nudity, and other mature themes.
