ACHTUNG, BABY! – It’s German Film Week 2012

Starting this weekend, the IFI present German Film Week, with new films from Volker Schlondorff and Andreas Dresen amongst the much-loved oldies.
It was Schlondorff who brought Gunter Grass’ The Tin Drum to the big screen in 1979, which won that year’s Best Foreign Film Oscar, whilst Dresen, not so well known here, will have his latest offering, Stopped On Track, screened, having won Un Certain Regard at Cannes last year as well as a clutch of Lolas (Germany’s answer to the Oscars).

The programme consists of Calm At Sea (May 10th, 6.40pm), followed by 6.50pm screenings for Cracks In The Shell (May 11th), Almanya: Welcome To Germany (May 12th), Colour Of The Ocean (May 13th), 4 Days In May (May 14th), The System (May 15th) and Stopped On Track (May 15th). Check for full details.
