    On Thursday, 18th of September, “Berlin Stories – Books of a City” will have its world premiere in Haus der Berliner Festspiele. The film will be screened at 9 p.m. as part of the Berlin International Literature Festival.




    The event is open to all and  admission is free!




     

    “Berlin Stories” looks upon Berlin from literature’s perspective:  from classics as Alfred Döblin’s “Berlin Alexanderplatz” and Ulrich Plenzdorf’s „Legende vom Glück ohne Ende“ to Sven Regener’s cult book „Herr Lehmann“, and to „Berlin liegt im Osten“, which was written by German-Russian author Nellja Veremej and published last year. The result is a character study of the capital based on the stories that were and are written there.

    We are very pleased that our co-production “Midsummer Night’s Tango” will be shown on September 27 at 10pm at the Ars Independent Festival in Poland.

    The film follows three passionate and spirited tango musicians from Argentina, who are searching for the origins of tango. No one would have expected that they journey would bring them to Finland, a country that couldn’t be even more calm and peaceful.

    The Ars Independent Festival starts on September 23 in Katowize in Poland and presents a range of interdisciplinary “moving pictures” as a medium for artistic expression and space for critical discussion.
