The Goethe Institute presents a film festival curated with German precision

Gisela Werler attempted 19 robberies in her career as Germany’s notorious ‘lady bank robber’. Her exploits are recounted in Christian Alvart’s Banklady, the opening-night film of this year’s Audi Festival of German Films, for which star Nadeshda Brennicke will be in attendance. Over the festival’s 16 days, more than 50 Teutonic features, shorts and documentaries will screen, demonstrating the breadth of Germany’s recent screen culture. Bank robbers also feature in horror movie Bela Kiss: Prologue, about a serial killer’s ghost. Other highlights include Gold, starring Nina Hoss, about German-American immigrants hunting gold in 19th century Canada, and Sources of Life, a family saga covering the postwar years. Wistful black-and-white comedy Oh Boy, meanwhile, follows the misadventures of a young man on the streets of Berlin, offering a view of German life beyond the clichés of order and functionality.

Screenings will be held at Palace Cinema Como and Kino Cinemas.
