Here’s our regular Wednesday listing of movies being shown in English and other original languages at Leipzig cinemas for the next seven days. This week marks the beginning of the Sommerkino auf der Feinkost, with a huge screen set up at the Feinkost complex in Südvorstadt for the summer evenings. In the city center, this Monday once again brings us the OmU Sneak Preview at Cinestar.
A very well-accomplished but apparently quite modest fellow glocal will be speaking in Leipzig on Wednesday, June 3. It’s the inaugural lecture of Prof. Scarlett Cornelissen, the recently appointed Leibniz Professor at Leipzig University’s Research Academy. It’s entitled “Asia in the African Scholarly Imaginary,” and sounds intriguing to me, so I’ll be there. The lecture starts at 5:15 p.m. and lasts until 6:45 p.m., at the Alter Senatssaal, Ritterstr. 26, 04109 Leipzig. It’s open to the general public.
