ahhhhhh. chilling spring into action with a good film, or 3!
The force is strong in Leipzig. StarWars: The Force Awakens, finally in theaters Dec. 17th, will be playing in its original English version at both Passage Kinos and Cineplex this movie week, with various showtimes. Here’s the rundown.
The film festivals featuring films in the original this week take us, respectively, to China (chai.China, put on by the local Confucius Institute and die naTo); France and Latin America for one more day, the 25th of November (21. Französische Filmtage and 6. Latinamerikanische Tage); the world of a legendary French director (Retrospektive Louis Malle at Schaubühne Lindenfels, partly connected to the French film fest); and some of the secrets of the soul (die NaTo’s Mythos Freiheit // 3: SEELE).
Highlights of our list: The 21st edition of the “French Days” and the new “Kurdish Days” film fests start in town; meanwhile, the 6th edition of the “Latin American Days” film fest continues. Also, for fans of Woody Allen, his latest, Irrational Man, opens this weekend in OmU. And the MLK film Selma returns.
Our highlights this week are the OmU opening of the new James Bond movie, Spectre, and separately, the 6th edition of the “Latin American Days” movie fest, with movies playing in the original Portuguese and Spanish with German subtitles at Schaubühne Lindenfels this movie week. I might be found there at some point!
