Gulf German Film Festival
the first edition of the Gulf German Film Festival will be presented in the UAE and Bahrain by the German Embassy Abu Dhabi, in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Gulf Region.
This star-studded event invites all to its screening of groundbreaking new German language movies that range from art-house films to box-office hits, as well as children’s matinees and late-night movies.
The Gulf German Film Festival will commence with Undine by Christian Petzold, one of Germany’s most beloved directors, a film which premiered at the 2020 Berlin Film Festival.
The second day will start with a family matinee of Veins of the World by Byambasuren Davaa. This transports us into the world of the Mongolian steppe. It is followed by an intense social drama, System Crasher, by Nora Fingscheidt, which is about nine-year-old Benni whose past trauma and problems with anger hinder her from finding permanent care.
Other films to be shown will include The Perfect Candidate, by Haifaa Al-Mansour, Dust by Udita Bhargava, A Hidden Life by Terrence Malick, and One-Way to Moscow.
All movies will be streamed online on Vimeo. For more info, you can click here.
