The latest film is the 2019 Weitermachen Sanssouci. It's possibly the first film to tackle the discontents that have dominated universities over the past 10-20 years. A film by Max Linz, it's crafted with a keen sense of Berlin's sensitivities, urban backdrops, office decor, and academic attire. He exaggerates decadent university jargon with gusto, its buzzwords functioning almost like the bait in behavioural studies.
Fünf Dinge, die ich nicht verstehe is the next latest about a 15-year-old farmer who'd rather be anywhere but in a classroom at school. Neglected by his family, he spends most of his time with his friend Marika. Friendship turns to love and Johannes does not know where he belongs anymore. He tries to get away from it all, but alas, he can't get away from himself.
Of the four docos on offer,Das Dritte Auge is about the eventful lives of famous Jewish photographers Grete Stern and Ellen Auerbach. The film interweaves artistic, professional and personal aspects. With so many to enjoy, there's still more. For more films for FREE, head to German Cinema Online and discover over 100 films and stream for free.
