Dear F ri end s of Ge r m an Ci n e m a!

Once again, the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles along with our partners, German Films, the American Cinematheque, Lufthansa, and Berlin & Beyond Film Festival / San Francisco are proud to present the fourth German Currents Showcase, featuring some of the best German films of the past year. This year we selected a wide array of documentaries and feature films, from sweeping epics to intimate comedies. Our movies cover powerful emotional topics from immigration, aging and abuse, to more light-hearted fare, such as VINCENT WANTS TO SEA, a German box-office hit with young adults. Furthermore, we are proud to present the first German 3D animated film, ANIMALS UNITED, inspired by the famous book by Erich Kästner, plus the epic historical drama POPE JOAN, based on the book by Donna Cross. After each screening, filmmakers, actors and producers involved in the film will be on hand for a Q&A session. We would like to thank our friends, partners and main sponsors Lufthansa, ELMA and FRIENDS OF GOETHE, who made this showcase possible. We look forward to engaging audiences and panelists who make it all worthwhile. Goethe-Institut Los Angeles www.americancinemat 22
