KINO! Film Salon is a monthly online club to discuss films from Germany.
How it works: Each month we choose a German film or series currently available to stream on U.S. platforms, watch it independently, and come together for a hosted conversation with other fans of German film.
Register For our July session, we picked Arne Birkenstock and Jan Tengeler’s charming 2012 documentary, Sound of Heimat, a love letter to the role music plays in the German cultural imagination. Essentially a road movie, New Zealand musician Hayden Chisholm embarks on an odyssey across Germany, exploring the country’s rich aural history from folk music, yodeling, and polka to jazz and even hip hop.

Sound of Heimat won the 2014 German Record Critics’ Award.

Hosted by Jim Kolmar

Jim programs for SXSW and Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, and was a founding committee member of Festival Internacional de Cine Tulum (FICTU). He has participated in numerous international festival juries, panels, and committees.
KINO! Film Salon is a production of Telescope Film, in partnership with the German Film Office.
