Saturday, February 29 – 7:00pm

Ages 8+

This all-German language program is filled with stories of a wild world — an epic playground battle, messages fished from bottles floating in the sea, miracles performed by a learned man, and the story of a girl who cannot recognize her own face, until she draws it. All films are in German with English subtitles.

Dieses deutschsprachige Filmprogramm ist vollgepackt mit Geschichten einer wilden Welt – eine gewaltige Schlacht auf dem Spielplatz, eine Flaschenpost aus dem Meer, von einem Gelehrten vollbrachte Wunder sowie die Erzählung eines Mädchens, das ihr eigenes Gesicht so lange nicht erkennen kann bis sie es schließlich zeichnet. Alle Filme werden auf Deutsch mit englischen Untertiteln gezeigt.
