Upcoming Film Series at the Goethe-Institut L.A. Includes Some Rarely Seen Works

Goethe Institut’s upcoming Wednesday night film series will begin this Wednesday, September 2nd. The screenings will precede the opening of the touring exhibition Brilliant Dilletantes – Subculture in Germany in the 1980s.

Take a look at the full schedule HERE

There are some films in the line-up that are almost never screened, including the first four films in the series. The horror-mystery-sci fi
feature “Decoder” is a long-established
underground cult favorite with William Borroughs playing a role as “The old man.”
The Short experimental program Berlin Super 80 highlights several underground filmmakers working in Berlin from 1978-1984.

Uli Edel
(Director and writer of “The Baader-Meinhof Complex”) is scheduled to appear for a rare screening of his film “Christiane F.” (in German With
English Subtitles), and Rainer Kirberg’s “Die Letzte Rache” (“The Last Revenge”) is a truly intriguing “neo-expressionist” gem.

The program also includes a recent film titled “Punk!” (“Tod den Hippies!! Es lebe der Punk”), which opened in Germany earlier this year and aligns with the sensitivities of the rest of the showcase.

All screenings are free!
