The third Deutscher Filmklub of this year is an entertaining bicycle road movie from 2014 by Christian Zübert: “Tour de Force” (Hin und Weg). The main character Hannes suffers from a terminal illness and wants his friends to accompany him on a bike trip to Belgium, where he plans to end his suffering. In a humorous but at the same time sensitive manner, Zübert addresses the controversial topic of euthanasia.
The film will be shown in German with English subtitles. Afterwards there will be a moderated discussion.
This year Canada is commemorating its 150th anniversary. To celebrate, the Goethe-Institut will run a special program, “Germany @ Canada 2017 – Partners From Immigration to Innovation,” showcasing the close relationship between Germany and Canada.
Join us for an exciting edition of the Deutscher Filmklub all year long, where we will show our top 10 German film favourites from 1930-2015. From classics to contemporary movies, come for the screening and enjoy the discussion in German and English afterwards!
All films are in German with English subtitles. Free but space is limited, RSVP to email@example.com.
