Film|Neu 2019: Tickets Available Now!
Tickets are now on sale for the 27th edition of Film|Neu, Washington’s annual festival of contemporary cinema from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. This year’s films explore the absurd, the challenges that come with pursuing ambitious dreams, remaining true to oneself in the face of great change, and being an outsider torn between belonging and remaining a misfit.
Films Across Borders: Bagdad Café (Out of Rosenheim) (1987), dir. Percy Adlon
After a substantial domestic dispute during a cross-country road trip, uptight Bavarian housewife Jasmin stays behind alone in the Mojave Desert with her husband’s suitcase. She ends up in the one-horse town of Bagdad, its skyline populated only with a single water tower and a motel that mostly serves drifters and truckers. Brenda, an overwhelmed and woman who has just been abandoned by her own husband, is in charge there. Initially a subject of distrust and scrutiny from Brenda, Jasmin slowly befriends the eccentric residents of Bagdad and wins Brenda over by befriending her children. Together, the women form an unlikely friendship and bring the rest stop back to life.
