This Fall, the German Austrian Film Festival is looking at very recent movies from Germany & Austria, depicting characters in a state of crisis, trapped in situations that force them to break with societal norms and ultimately become outsiders.
With Sonne (2022) on September 26, a fiction feature debut by Kurwin Ayub (in the presence of the director), Sorry Comrade (2022) on October 3, a documentary comedy by Vera Brückner, and The Ordinaries (2022) on October 10, a Sci-Fi debut film by Sophie Linnenbaum, the series explores the theme of identity crisis through the lens of friendship, romance, and ambition.
By presenting three different films by three young woman filmmakers from Germany and Austria, the GAFF is introducing the newcomers of contemporary German-speaking cinema.
Free admission and open to the public, all three films are in German with English subtitles.
Sponsored by the German Russian Department, the Center for Global Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, and the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York.
