Pandaemonium Geramanicum presents its Fall 2010 PG Kino film series, Berlin Films I: Streets and City Spaces. Part of a two-semester series on Berlin Films, the six films presented in the Fall semester will showcase various social experiences located in Germany’s capital in the 20th and 21st centuries. As the camera lens moves from leisure trips before the rise of National Socialism to dreams in a divided Germany, Berlin’s diverse neighborhoods and cityscapes become the backdrop for stories of cultural change and formation by directors including Andreas Dresen, Bettina Blümner, and Wim Wenders, among others.
This semester, PG Kino moves to Tuesdays at 8PM. Screenings will be held in Kaufmann Auditorium, Goldwin Smith Hall, unless otherwise noted or advertised.
