“It has been such a learning experience with programming 52 German films, I am so thankful for our advisory board, mostly Louis Black, (who started SXSW and the Austin Chronicle), he’s a specialist with New German Cinema which is the German film movement of the 60s – 80s. So, we’ll be screening a lot of Fassbinder, Herzog and Wim Wender films, along with many many others.”

(2009, directed by Michael Haneke, 2hr 24 minutes)
In a village in Protestant northern Germany, on the eve of World War I, the children of a church and school run by the village schoolteacher and their families experience a series of bizarre incidents that inexplicably assume the characteristics of a punishment ritual. Who could be responsible for such bizarre transgressions?
Leonie Benesch, Josef Bierbichler, and Rainer Bock star in director Michael Haneke's Palme d'Or-winning period drama.
This film is pay-what-you-can.
Free parking on street.
