by German Films
23/03/2011 - German Films will be presenting the 32nd edition of KINO!2011: New Cinema from Germany from April 27-May 2 as part of the annual film season curated by program founder Laurence Kardish (Senior Curator, Department of Film) at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
Thanks to the support of the Goethe Institut New York and the German Consulate General, seven new films and TV productions will be shown in the presence of numerous German artists. German Films will hold a reception at the MoMA for local distributors and media representatives.
KINO!2011 will open with Three [trailer] by Tom Tykwer, who will personally introduce his film, which has been nominated for six German Film Awards. US distributor Strand Releasing will release Three in local cinemas in the second half of this year.
The programme also includes the Regina Ziegler-produced TV mini-series The Weissensee Saga: A Berlin Love Story. In addition, there will be screenings of the documentaries How To Make a Book With Steidl by Gereon Wetzel (who will be present) and Anne Linsel’s Dancing Dreams [trailer].
Three screenings will be dedicated to Germany’s up-and-coming filmmakers: German Films’ short film program NEXT GENERATION 2010, German Film Award nominee The Day I Was Not Born [trailer] by Florian Cossen, and Philip Koch's Picco (see article). The Goethe Institut New York will also organize a workshop with Koch and Cossen.
