First, there’s a dead rat hanging on the door of the house where Xhafer lives with his wife and children. Then the emails he sends are 'accidentally' no longer being received. The signs that this pharmaceutical engineer is being bullied and harassed in his workplace are increasing. Even if neither his wife nor his colleagues seem to believe him, this man, who is originally from Kosovo but who has been well integrated for years, feels more and more outcast from his (German) community. Or is he losing touch with reality?
Our Movie Nights are organized by the Language Department of the Goethe-Institut Washington for course participants but all are welcome and no RSVP is required. Feel free to bring friends, snacks and BYOB.
