06/23/2019 - Film: Queen of Niendorf
It's summer in the quiet little backwater and 10-year-old Lea thinks the girls have changed and become pretty boring. She would rather hang out with some of the boys, who have dens and rafts and get up to half-crazy stuff. The problem is that they're all part of a gang and there are no girls allowed. But the boys see that Lea is actually pretty cool - and if she can pass the initiation test then she can join. A film about courage and being accepted for what you are. The film is shown with both English and Swedish subtitles.

Film is part of the German Currents Kino Series.

Admission/Cost: $7.50 - $11

06/21/2019 - Film: Victoria
Victoria is a 2015 German crime thriller film directed by Sebastian Schipper and starring Laia Costa and Frederick Lau. It is one of the few feature films shot in a single continuous take. Victoria is a Spanish girl who moved to Berlin and has been living there for three months. She works in a cafe for a meager wage, and does not know anybody in the new city. In addition, she does not speak much German, and her only common language with the people around her is English. Leaving a club at around 4 o'clock in the morning after a night of dancing and drinking, she meets four young men who are denied entry to the club. They are "Sonne" (sun), "Boxer", "Blinker" (turn signal), and "Fuß" (foot). The men invite her to take a walk through the city and she agrees. After stealing some alcohol from an all night shop, they all get on the roof of an apartment building where they drink and smoke marijuana together, while Boxer reveals that he spent time in jail for hurting someone.

Film is part of the German Currents Kino Series.

06/17/2019 - Film: Imitation of Life
Ashamed of her heritage, Sarah Jane (Susan Kohner) — the light-skinned daughter of Annie (Juanita Moore), a live-in housemaid employed by a vainglorious actress (Lana Turner) — tries to pass for white. John Stahl's magnanimous adaptation of Fannie Hurst's best-selling sudser had proven successful enough in 1934 for Universal to commission a remake 25 years later. By the time Douglas Sirk was assigned the post, he had long revealed a master's hand at using light, color, and composition as a running visual commentary, one frequently at odds with the subject matter at hand. Sirk follows the melodrama to the letter, but his camera gets the last word. This is a case of a film looking better today than when it was originally released. Why Universal failed to spring for Technicolor baffles the brain. For years, it was impossible to find a print worthy of cinematographer Russell "Sculpting With Light" Metty's embossed hues. All it took was one pass through the projector and the EastmanColor stock on which this was originally printed had already faded to a washed shade of rare steak. The remastered DCP is a revelation. Not to be missed.

Amori Che Non Sanno Stare al Mondo (Stories of Love that Cannot Belong to this World). Claudia and Flavio were passionately in love for a long time. Then their story ended and things were not easy, especially for her. After a few years, their world is adrift. Flavio feels the need to keep on going, down on the ground; Claudia would rather never forget. A sentimental comedy about a love story that is not fit to survive, with a touch of irony and a new beginning.
