DANKE D TO THE DEUTSCH

North & South - - Public Trust Promotion -

Two way­ward teens com­man­deer a Lada in road-trip com­edy Good­bye Ber­lin, head­liner of the free (yes, free!) Ger­man Film Fes­ti­val (na­tion­wide, Septem­ber 5-Oc­to­ber 8), which ex­tends its bor­ders to in­clude flicks from neigh­bour­ing Aus­tria and Switzer­land. Also on the pro­gramme: Ste­fan Zweig: Farewell to Europe, a drama about the Aus­trian au­thor who in­spired Wes Anderson’s The Grand Bu­dapest Ho­tel; Neo Rauch: Com­rades and Com­pan­ions, a doc­u­men­tary about of one of the most suc­cess­ful Ger­man painters of his gen­er­a­tion; and Big & Lit­tle, a fam­ily movie about a 10-year-old who dreams of be­com­ing a sumo wrestler.

Mean­while, Cel­e­brate Stu­dio Ghi­bli (na­tion­wide Au­gust 24-Septem­ber 20) screens the ac­claimed Ja­panese an­i­ma­tion house’s com­plete 22-film cat­a­logue, from the imag­i­na­tive sto­ry­telling of Howl’s Mov­ing Cas­tle and Spir­ited Away to in­sight­ful doc­u­men­taries.
