Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne—what lies outside Germany’s metropolises? “City, Country, River—A Cinematic Journey Across Germany” is a new yearlong Goethe on Demand series exploring everyday realities in underrepresented parts of Germany, with a new film offered every month.
Start Streaming An entire century is covered in this family chronicle shaped by strong women. Shortly after the end of World War I, the filmmaker’s great-grandmother moved to Bavaria’s Lake Walchensee and opened a café. Between this moment in the 1920s, her mother and aunt’s journeys—physical and spiritual—in the 1960s, and her own life, director Janna Ji Wonders draws out intimate stories from five generations of women in this matriarchal family epic.
