The Forum in Hexham will show The White Ribbon (Das weisse Band) on 18 April. For further details, visit the Forum Website.
The next German film to be shown at the Tyneside Cinema will be Run Lola Run on 20 May at 9pm.
It’s now also 80 years ago that Josef von Sternberg’s ‘Der Blaue Engel’ had its premiere in Berlin, launching a Hollywood career for its star Marlene Dietrich. Maybe another film worth seeing in 2010?
If there are any films (recent or classics), Stammtisch members would like to see here in Newcastle, please let me know and we can maybe arrange a special viewing.
One of those might be Plastic Planet, a new documentary, that examines the impact that the material has on our life, health and the environment. The Austrian director Werner Boote, whose grandfather himself was the MD of a plastics company, travelled around the world to find answers. If you want to find out more about what he discovered, visit http://plastic-planet.de/index.html for details, news and a trailer (part German/part English).
