18.45 h - We Are Never Alon”: CZ 2016, 115 min., regie: Petr Václav, Tsjechisch met Engelse ondertiteling
A bleak, feel-bad drama barely leavened by the caustic, dark and sometimes absurd humor. A peek into quietly desperate live in a village, where the prison and the brothel are the only “attractions”. Winner of the Tagesspiegel Readers’ Jury Award in 2016.
21.00 h - Victoria
D 2014/2015, 140 min., regie: Sebastian Schipper, Duits met Engelse ondertiteling
