The 58th edition of Leipzig’s big documentary film festival is coming to town Oct. 26-Nov. 1. Don’t miss it! Here’s the lowdown.
The friend who watched the movie with me at Leipzig’s Regina Palast Monday evening said he felt the movie had two main takeaways: that women are weak and that you cannot trust Mexicans. I must say I would’ve been quite surprised by a truly feminist, stereotype-defying Hollywood movie.
Today we start our regular listing with movies in the original from the festival Asynchron, which features documentaries and experimental films on the Holocaust, playing at Cineding. This Friday, check back here to read the review I wrote of the Hollywood movie “Sicario,” one of the films dominating Leipzig cinemas this movie week. It’s playing in English at Kinobar Prager Frühling every day this Thursday-Wednesday.
Here’s our regular listing of films being shown in English and other original foreign languages, and sometimes German with foreign partnerships, at Leipzig cinemas for this movie week. From now on, I will try to write movie reviews more or less regularly for ones you can see here. This week I reviewed “Que Horas Ela Volta?” whose showtimes you can find in this post, among many other interesting-sounding cinematic features including a biographical film on the Lance Armstrong investigation and scandal.
This elucidating, award-winning portrait of the long-standing domestic worker culture in Brazilian society, focusing on a particular fictional family’s story, is playing at naTo in Leipzig this month.
Here’s our regular listing of films being shown in English and other original foreign languages (with labels such as OmU, OF and OV) at Leipzig cinemas for this movie week. What are you up to today? Wednesday 30.09 is the last chance to see the second installment of the film festival Mythos Freiheit, along with some other movies for the time being; but if you can’t make it, the rest of the movie week might just make up for it with the film festival SCHLINGEL, Russian films and an array of other options.
